Dream Big Project
Our “Dream Big” project aims to engage and empower children to think about the world, work, and how it connects to areas of the curriculum that excite them.
The society in which our pupils are growing up in is ever changing and evolving, jobs they may end up working in may not even currently exist! We have decided to create a four year, twelve term rolling programme to deliver different career fields throughout KS2. We commenced this project in the autumn term with a focus on “The Arts”, to be followed by:
Spring 18 Science and Engineering
Summer 18 Business and Entrepreneurship
Autumn 18 Technology
Spring 19 Sports
Summer 19 Health and Medicine
Autumn 19 Public Services
Spring 20 Environment, Nature and Animals
Summer 20 Food, farming and hospitality
Autumn 20 Voluntary
Spring 21 Fashion and Retail
Summer 21 Transport, construction and logistics
Please let the office know if you have other ideas of how you could share the experience of working in any of the above fields, or if you’d like to be involved, but are not sure how.
Our aim is for the children to become aware of the extent of possibilities in each field – and that a job using similar skills will feel very different depending on the field it is in. We are keen to capture as wide a range as possible to show the children how creative they can be when they think about the future!
"I just wanted to convey to you how much L, has got out of the Dream Big sessions to date. He has really enjoyed the two practical engineering sessions he has taken part in over the last couple of weeks. He also enjoyed the talk Dr Hirschberg gave in her assembly this week: "It was really interesting".
He was also really engaged by the assembly talks last term, and is looking forward to more visitors to the school next term."
