Exploring the world of work!

Discovery Work Day

Our year 6 children recently attended a Discovery Work Event at the Stadium of Light. This allowed the children to see the different types of careers and opportunities that will be available to them when they are older.

At the event there were a range of employers and tutors from colleges and Sunderland University. The children visited the South Shields Marine School stand where they used a virtual reality headset to explore the inside of a ferry. They visited the City of Sunderland College stand where they had the chance to try hairdressing and beauty activities. They also learned about how DNA is made and interacted with robots. The children met police officers and their horses and learned about their jobs.

The children had an enjoyable day and found out a great deal about a range of jobs and what they involve.
