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.
