Haddenham Community Infant School had a 'Sparkle Day' on Wednesday.

Says co-head teacher, Lucy McNeil: "the concept of 'Sparkle Day' is that the children get thinking about careers and interests for the future. This time we asked the children to watch the news and chat with their parents about different things and current affairs that interested them."

"We then asked them to think about the various job roles that were associated with what they had seen and discussed, e.g., a police officer, astronaut, archaeologist, zoo keeper, doctor, etc. We then asked them to let us know four job roles each that they would like to know more about so that we could find out what our children were interested in and to source some people currently in those roles who could work with the children for a morning to give them an insight and experience in some of these jobs."

"We had a zoologist, a doctor, a well as a space dome in school for the day."

"Children also had to exercise detective skills involved in solving a crime of stolen chocolate, artistic skills in creating a group piece of art work, a photographic workshop, some carpentry skills and some wonderful baking and cake decorating masterclasses."

Featured on this page are some of the photos taken throughout the day, some taken by the children photographers too. (Click on any image to see an enlarged version).
