It’s never too early to learn about the world of work.
Colegrave Primary School’s careers day saw Year 5 pupils meet employees from a variety of professions and ask plenty of questions about what they did.
The youngsters met representatives from the NHS, law and trading firms and even the Foreign Office, finding out how they could one day follow in their footsteps.
The day was organised by James Brazier, a Year 5 teacher at the Henniker Road, Stratford school.
He said: “Often careers fairs are thought of as opportunities for secondary school pupils and not primary.

“It is understandable given that the secondary school children are that much closer to actually having to secure jobs.
“However, I don’t think this difference in age should be a reason to limit children’s understanding of the real world.”
