Icknield Primary celebrates Careers Week

Careers week was held recently at The Icknield Primary School. Across all year groups, children had the opportunity to learn about a wide range of careers from employees in different industries, with a strong focus on female achievement. Visits came from:

Miss Collinson, from Redrow Homes, asked the children to put together a huge drainpipe from parts she had brought in.

Miss Hodges, a local plumber talked about toilets which, of course, the children loved! Mrs Smith, from John Huntingdon’s Charity, talked about the importance of food banks. Mrs Barrett, from Innovate Food Group, spoke to Reception and KS1 about nutrition and eating their 5-a-day fruit and vegetables.

Mrs Laxton, from Sawston Scene, spoke about magazine publishing. Mrs Brown, from the graphic design company Red Graphic, asked the children to put logo leaves on the Icknield tree.
