Guilsborough School – Guilsborough Food and Farming Challenge Day Year 7 Students Friday 29th March 2019 08.45am – 13.30pm The Farming Challenge Day for Year 7 students. This day is a great opportunity to help show our young students what farming is. We discuss what foods are grown on farm and also about the farming of animals. After various research we ask the students to get into their teams and then they have to design their own farm. They first have to make plans on a small scale just with pencil. After that the fun begins with plasticine, pipe cleaners, cotton wool, colours, paints, tissue paper, modelling clay etc. It’s a really great day and the students learn so much. They will be looking at marketing, team work, communication skills, sales, sponsorship etc. It will be great if you would like to come along and help support the students, you don’t have to be farming experts. We believe that the students will also learn a lot from business input as well. It is a fun day and enjoyed by all. Lunch, Tea and Coffee are made available throughout the day. Guilsborough School – Guilsborough - Northampton Year 10 Speed Interviewing Event – Friday 29th March 2019 08.30am – 12.00pm Guilsborough School would really welcome you to come in and join them in supporting their Year 10 students with this fun but vital event of speed interviewing before the students go out on their own work experience week. The students will move from one business volunteer to another business volunteer and spend 5/8 minutes interviewing YOU!! Yes, they will be asking you questions about your job, how you got to where you are, the highs and lows of your job! This will give the students an insight into how many different job roles are out there in the world of work. Its quick fun fast paced but the students learn so much from these events. If you can do either session or both that will be super. There will be Danishes, lunch, cake and tea and coffee served throughout the day.
