Year 6 were thrilled to be invited to record a segment for Newsround last week, all in aid of International Women's Day and gender equality. They were all very excited when the camera crew arrived to set up in the classroom, and even more so when Hayley walked in, as she was a presenter that many of the children recognised from the television! After thinking about job roles, and the qualities needed for certain types of jobs (many of the children thinking that certain jobs were more suited to men), the children then got to meet four women who hold these positions; firefighter, construction manager, robotics engineer and train driver. The children then got time to talk to each of the women and find out more about their jobs, what inspired them and how they got to where they are today. It was a fantastic morning and we can't wait to see if they make the cut and be able to watch Y6 on CBBC this week.
(The children were also praised for their maturity, manners and enthusiasm by all of the adults involved in the filming - we are incredibly proud of them!)
