Year 5 enjoyed a practical Science lesson as they explored how gears work. They used toys and models to investigate how the gears fit together and how clockwise and anti-clockwise movements fit together. The children also reflected on what happened when large and small cogs are fitted together and they looked at the gear mechanism on a bicycle.
Year 5 visited the offices of law firm Weil, Gotshall and Manges to find out the different jobs available to them in a corporate company. There was a long list including operations, IT, solicitor, caterer, paralegal, research, coaching and security.Year 5 got the chance to interview the people already doing a variety of jobs to find out what their jobs entailed and how they had ended up working at Weils.
A tour of the large offices in Fetter Lane included a trip up to the roof terrace and to the restaurant that makes meals for the staff. There are apparently six beds on site for the lawyers who need to work late into the night!
