Kidzania trip

At the end of last term, Year 4 enjoyed a trip to enhance their learning. The year group visited Kidzania to complement their unit of work about careers.

The boys took part in a wide range of career experiences including being in the fire brigade, medical profession, designing computer games and playing cricket. They showed their entrepreneurial skills by earning their 'Kidzos' from working in various jobs, which they could then use to pay to take part in other activities. Many of the boys also opened their own Kidzania 'bank account' and learnt how to use a cash point and manage their finance.

The stimulating experience gave pupils a small but invaluable glimpse of life in the working world.
