On Thursday 9th February 2017, Bournemouth University students came to Upton Junior School. When they arrived, we had a quick break while they set up in the classroom. After the students had finished setting up, 6S excitedly walked in and found a seat by one of the students. Once Dan and the 6 other students introduced themselves, we played a quick game about what we already knew about University.
Soon after we finished the game, Dan spoke to us again and answered any questions. We found out that in the UK alone, there are 37,500 courses you can take. Then our students gave us each a sheet we had to fill in, which was about if we went to University what course would we take.
When everyone had finished filling in the sheet, our student (Abbie) gave us all an A3 sheet of coloured paper- which was used to make our graduation hats. We then had to decorate round and on top of our hats with what course we’d like to take. Most children (who finished quickly) got to make a scroll to match our hats. A few minutes later- while everyone was wearing their hats- we got given tokens to complete a survey about the workshop.
Thank You Miss Havicon for arranging this incredible workshop!
