CHILDREN at Wyche Primary and Nursery School in Nantwich had fun exploring future careers during their aspirations day.

Kids learned skills in beauty, the food industry, public services and design, with many local businesses offering hands-on taster sessions .

“Some children made burgers at Clewlows Butchers and were allowed to add their own flavourings to their bespoke burgers before taking them home to share with their families,” said headteacher, Wei Ling Lee.

“Others learnt about bread making with Chatwins and plaited their own bread rolls. At McCarthy’s Salon, the children had a different type of plait to deal with. The best fishtail plait won a prize.”

Steven Coles from Hall Smith Whittingham Solicitors taught the children about children’s rights, whilst at Reaseheath College, the children decorated – and ate lots of – cakes.

Eleswhere, children enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of Nantwich Museum and other children enjoyed dressing up in special attire at St Mary’s Church.

Miss Lee added: “We wanted to ensure that local businesses were involved in our project so that the children could clearly see what career opportunities were available to them on their doorstep.

“We were very lucky to have a fantastic response from so many local businesses, which meant that we could offer the children a wide range of career choices.

“It was fantastic to give our children an opportunity to see what kind of careers are available to them when they are older in their own town. It was a fun day and the children certainly felt inspired and now have high aspirations for their future.”
