Careers and work experience 

In careers, we have two special  projects this term; launching our new café within school and a gardening project. Some pupils will also support younger learners in school for their work experience. In our careers sessions we will be thinking about various occupations and the skills we might need to develop for these roles. These will include developing our communication skills, following instructions and working as a team.


In Independence, we be working on preparing and making snacks and drinks for ourselves. We will be looking at different recipes, working out the costings and purchasing the ingredients from local shops before cooking. We will work on following directions to do this, and understanding the order in which various tasks must be completed to create simple snacks including healthy pizzas.
