Ready for Business Day
Where: Redhill Primary School, Cannock
When: Thursday 7 and Friday 8 April
Time: 8.45am - 3.30pm
Please note: there are only 5 places left for each day
Activity days for Years 5 and 6 pupils designed to get them thinking about what they want to achieve in life and begin to expand their horizons in a fun, imaginative way.
You will be asked to talk to a group about your job, who it helps but, more importantly, how it has allowed you to achieve things such as buying a house, car or going on holiday.
The children will also take part in a project where they will write to businesses in the community to ask them to sponsor a school award and you will help them think about what they should include in their proposal to persuade local businesses to sponsor the award.
Time Travellers Challenge Day
Where: Brownhills Primary School, Walsall
When: Thursday 14 April
Time: 8.30am - 3.30pm
This creative Doctor Who-inspired activity for Year 2 pupils starts the summer term where they will learn about local history in Brownhills. The day will include teamwork, plenty of arts and crafts which will engage these young learners and bring their enthusiasm to the fore!
Skills required - communication and a sense of fun. The ability to have fun with scissors, glue, craft paper and sellotape are also an advantage.
