Yesterday, as part of their link with Children’s University, Year 5 children went to visit City Campus in Wolverhampton. This included a tour of the buildings and an explanation of what to expect in University life.

Their first activity included working in groups to design their own university using lego. Each group was given a specific part of the university to design and build:

  • University Library
  • Halls of Residence
  • Canteen
  • Student’s Union
  • Sports Centre
  • Academic Buildings

After sitting and having lunch, which was provided by the university, the children were introduced to all the possible courses that are available at university. This included activities like; guess the career, how many jobs are there in a hospital… This was really eye-opening for our children as it really broadened their minds as to the amount of careers out there for them in the future. Our many thanks go to the Wolverhampton University outreach team who arranged this for us.
