World of Work week
This week we have had many people come in and talk to us about their jobs. So far, we have been visited by Mr. White, a 3rd assistant director from the TV and film industry. Then a visit from Mr. Tootill who works with Amazon Prime Video, he specialised in coding. Once we were visited by them, we had Mr. Marlow who works in HR and finance. Lots of us found his job quite fascinating.
On Thursday we had two visits, one by Mr. Simpkins and another by Mr. Gibson. Mr. Simpkins worked in Heathrow Airport as a Project Manager, unfortunately due to Covid-19 he had to resign and now works at Pinewood Studios. Though he is looking forward to return to the airport once again! Mr. Gibson explained to us that he is a Penetration Testing Service Delivery Manager and that he checks that the Penetration Testers are doing their work correctly.
On Friday morning, we had a visit by a wonderful lady called Ms. Griot who told us about her job as a scientist. She helps to design and help with the chemicals that go onto crops so that they don’t die and we can enjoy our food safely. This was followed by an inspiring talk from Mrs Cole. She discussed her role in sales and how her company helps transition people into new jobs – it was fascinating to hear. Reception, year 4 and Year 5 were visited by Cpl Ward, a soldier from the British Army, to discuss his role as an armourer.
These visitors have inspired us to work harder and live life in all its fullness
