Big Me Week
For Big Me week, we have been talking about what we want to be when we grow up. We started off the week by looking at different jobs and then had a go at drawing pictures of the jobs we want to do. Then Louise Conway visited us on Monday morning to talk about her job, which is a librarian and an illustrator. She showed us pictures that she has drawn in non-fiction and fiction books as well as greetings cards.
On Tuesday morning, Janina Aitken came to speak to us about how she became the Deptuy Head at The Totteridge Acadamy. She talked about her journey through Primary and Secondary school, to when she became a PE teacher and finally a Deputy Head.
On Wednesday, we dressed up as what we wanted to be when we grow up. We had teachers, vets, doctors, footballers, astronauts, security guard and many more. In the morning, Brian Townsend spoke to us about being a police officer and that he works for the queen. He talked to us about what type of police officer he is, what they usually carry around with them and how we can stay safe and know how to recognise a real police officer. In the afternoon, Nicholas Attar visited our classroom. He is an inventor and showed us lots of designs he made for a new cup and bottle that transform into 14 different objects such as a torch, telescope and storage.
