P1/2 Developing the Young Workforce – Travel Agency

P1/2 expressed an interest in setting up a Travel Agents/Travel shop in their role play area. Mrs Trewick invited Emma from a local Travel Agency in to speak to the children about her job and she then stayed on and took part in some role play activities such as how to answer queries over the phone and how to fill in holiday booking forms. The children were very engaged and interested and asked lots of great questions. Lots of writing and reading went on as children looked through the brochures Emma brought, filled out class passports and booking forms and completed planning sheets for aeroplane models. Over the course of the morning the children also created an aeroplane within the classroom. A huge thanks to Emma from all of P1/2 for coming and sharing her knowledge of being a Travel Agent with us.
