On Monday 12th June 2017, Year 4 and 5 pupils from Molehill Primary Academy, Oaks Primary Academy and Tree Tops Primary Academy visited Kidzania, London. The Leigh Academies Trust fully funded the visit as a way of exposing children to a range of potential career paths. The children had the chance to experience a choice of 60 different post-education activities ranging from news reporting to multi-drop delivery and air-conditioning engineering to university.
Many of the children left Kidzania with a much more focused idea of what they would like to be when they are older. “I didn’t know before today that I wanted to be an animator, but now I do!”.
Following the visit, year 5 are taking part in their annual writing week with a focus on their experiences at Kidzania and both years 4 and 5 are completing units of work on the idea of employment.
What People Say
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”

I can’t wait to come back and work with the children and staff in the future. During every session the children were exceptional and a real credit to the school.
