2nd – 6th March is National Careers Week!

To mark this event we will be running two lunchtime drop-in sessions for all year groups, to come and find out about various career areas. Students will be able to pick up literature, course information and use websites to find out about a day in the life of people working in their chosen career area. We hope to have a representative from QA Apprenticeships talking about IT jobs, a team from Tesco introducing students to their Tesco Academy website which provides guidance on CV writing, interview skills etc, and another ex-student talking about working in the film industry.

Tuesday 3rd March – 12.15-2.00pm in the Cambridge Campus Library

Thursday 5th March – 12.15-2.00pm in the Bury Campus IAG Room

You can visit the NCW website and view videos of people talking about their careers and how they got into them, find out useful careers websites and gain hints and tips on CV writing, work experience, interview skills and employability skills. Go to http://www.nationalcareersweek.com/ and follow the links to various resources. You  can also follow on Twitter at #NCW2015/@NCW2015.


We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March, by asking children to come dressed as their favourite book character. There will be book prizes for the most original costume in each class and every child will receive their £1 World Book Token. Please make sure children do come as story book characters not footballers or film characters; the aim is to get children thinking about the books they read. Some great ideas are Elmer, Goldilocks and even some animal characters.

Children will be participating in reading activities during the day as part of their daily lessons. We will also be having a book swap during the day. This will require children to bring in a book that they no longer want (this needs to be in good condition) in order to swap their book for another!

If you would like to find out more information about World Book Day, there are ideas, activities and resources at:  www.worldbookday.com/resources/schools/primary-schools

We look forward to seeing you all dressed up as your favourite character!

Thank you for your continued support.
