What does a firefighter look like ? Play video clip Slide 27

28 What do kids think? Did you think that a firefighter would be a man?
The days of the traditional all male style of Fire Service have gone. The word “fireman” isn’t used any more in the Fire Service. Instead they say “firefighter”. More women are becoming firefighters. People in trouble need somebody to help them, they don't care who. Slide 28

29 Play video clip What do kids think? What sort of person works in
a nursery ? Play video clip Slide 29

30 What do kids think? Did you think that somebody who worked in a nursery would be a woman? Men can work in nurseries too. In fact it’s really important that they do, so that children have both men and women to look up to. It’s a really fun job that is very creative and active. You will normally need a childcare qualification to work as a nursery nurse. Slide 30

Slide 33

34 What do kids think? Did you think that an airline pilot would be a man? Women can be pilots too. There’s no such thing as a job that’s just for boys, or just for girls. It’s an exciting job that allows you to travel all over the world. There are different courses that you can take to become a pilot, but it helps if you have a good level of Science and Maths. Slide 34

37 Play video clip What do kids think? What’s it like being an engineer ?
Slide 37

38 What do kids think? Did you think that engineering was a dirty job, for men? Engineering is behind everything we eat, wear and use, from make-up, to cars, to mobile phones. Engineers find out what people need, develop an idea and see how it can be made at a good price. Most engineering needs a good understanding of maths and science. It doesn’t have to involve getting dirty or greasy - some engineers do most of their work at a desk and others get more ‘hands-on’. Slide 38

39 Why do people work? All people work for ‘reward’.
This means that they get something out of working. Different people find different things important in their working lives: Some people think that money is the most important reason for working Other people think enjoyment is more important. Slide 39

40 Why do people work? To earn money.
Because they find their work interesting. Because they feel like they are making a difference to the world (for example somebody who works as an ambulance driver, or for a wildlife charity). Because they like the people they work with. Because it makes them feel important and they like the fact that other people look up to them. Slide 40

41 Why do people work? What would you find most important if you were working? Place the cards in order of importance. Slide 41

42 What if? poetry We are going to write a ‘what if’? poem.
The aim of this activity is to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes and to think creatively about different jobs. It’s not about choosing a job for yourself. Slide 42

43 What if? poetry What if I was a nurse? What if I went to university?
What if I was a jet pilot? What if I was in the army? What if I was a mechanic? What if I was a builder? What if I was a plumber? What if I was a scientist? What if I was a hairdresser? Slide 43

44 What if? poetry Once you have written your poem you could make a template linked to the job you have chosen and write your poem in it. For example, you might make a car template if you have written about being a taxi driver in your poem. Slide 44 44
