"Guess my job!"
On 23rd May 2019 we held our 4th Careers Day called "Guess My Job". Students had to guess the job of external employers by asking them questions in a 5 minute slot. The purpose of this day was to expose the children a varierty of differnt jobs. The children had to work in groups by asked questions to gather as much information from the employers to try and guess their precise job. It was a fantastic event organised by Hampshire Futures!
We received some lovely comments from the employers. Have a read of that they said here:
