Aspirations for the future
At Seabridge we are always thinking about how to prepare our children for the next stage in their learning journey and beyond. We regularly talk to the children about their aspirations and take the time to consider the jobs that mathematics is needed for.
The children have all completed aspiration jars to allow them to think about the career they would like to have.
If you really enjoy mathematics, here are some of the jobs you could aspire to do in the future:
- Automotive Engineer
- Captain of a ship
- Land Surveyor
