This week’s homework is Talk Time.

I can find out about a job.

Recent class discussions have shown that children have limited knowledge of jobs, responsibilities and qualifications needed. This homework is designed to help children find out a little more about the world of work!

Children should discuss a job (or two) with adults. They could research a job they’re interested in or find out about one that an adult in their lives has done in the past.  It’ll help develop economic awareness.

You could discuss:

Children will be discussing their homework in class, so don’t need to write anything down, just be ready for a discussion.

As usual with Talk Time homework, if an adult at home could write a short comment to say that they’ve discussed the homework with the child it would be great.
