Today the children in year 6 had a visit from Brian Souter from Money Mentoring. The children discussed what income was and learnt all about income tax. We looked at skills needed for jobs and how those related to the pay scale. It was a fun interactive session with the children guessing what they thought each job role’s salary would be. We were amused to learn most children thought teachers were paid £2500 a year!
A special thanks to Brian (AKA Professor Branestawm) who must have had a high caffeine intake prior to class, such were his energy levels throughout the day – he was practically skipping around the classroom. He made the children giggle lots during their learning – which is very important!
Hi, my name is Mr Farry, I still consider myself very much part of a great team in a great school, we really do ALL pull together to ensure the children complete a fantastic and enjoyable curriculum. I am still the P.E coordinator (a veteran now that I’ve joined the over 40s club), and still completely passionate about sport and my role in sport at Park. I am still actively involved external sports (both team and individual) and consider this essentially to maintaining a healthy body and mind. The children will tell you I’m still the jovial and humorous person I was when I joined the school, buy I’m simply four/five years older and ‘hopefully’ a little wiser, albeit with a few stray greys! My classroom is a busy place, with high expectations whilst still maintaining a nurturing environment, especially with the kind and generous Mrs Lucas by my side. The children, thus, continue to feel comfortable and content in their learning environment.
