6th July 2018
Over the last 2 weeks we have been lucky enough to have many visitors come to SEJ to talk about future careers. Every year group had the opportunity to listen to speakers and ask questions.
I asked four Year 6 children what their aspirations were, and which talk they particularly enjoyed.
“I want to be a teacher when I grow up.
I enjoyed listening to the fire service and learning new facts. I did not know they helped motorists too in the event of an emergency”
“When I am older I would like to be a vet or a hairdresser.
I enjoyed listening to the hairdresser and I learnt about all the different types of scissors. This is something I may want to do when I am college”
“When I am older I want to be a dance teacher.
I was really interested in the lady from HR. Her job sounded interesting and she helped other people. She enjoyed her job and her communication skills were good.
“When I grow up I would like to become a lawyer.
I really enjoyed listening to the Robotics man. He has helped with a ‘Mission to Mars’ and enjoys programming. He tests the robots before they go on a mission and really enjoys his job”
Being aspirational is incredibly important for all of us, whether young or old. I hope this week gave the children a flavour of what opportunities for available to them. A huge thank you to all our visitors. You were all amazing!

World Cup time!
I asked Year Three and Four children who they thought would win the World Cup this year. It was good to hear that plenty of girls, as well as boys are eager football fans. This is what they had to say about the World Cup.
“I support England as they have good skills”
“I would like Portugal to win as I think Ronaldo is an amazing player”
“I would like England to win and England is where I live. It’s an amazing country”
“My family are from the Philippines, but we still support England as we live here now”
“England are on good form and have a good chance of winning”
“My dad is a Chelsea fan and he wants England to win”
Good Luck England
