Y4 Job Interviews

Y4 Job Interviews

Year 4’s research into different jobs as as part of our Changing Jobs unit in Humanities continued today with two different interviews. First, we spoke to PC Dawson from Northumbria Police, who told us all about how he trained on the job. We asked lots of interesting questions about what PC Dawson likes about his job, and he showed us some of the special equipment he uses to keep safe – including his vest, radio and camera.


Then we spoke to Georgina Ascroft, the curator at Hartlepool Art Gallery and Museum. Georgina told us all about her childhood interest in history, and how this had led to her career in museums. Most recently, she has organised an exhibition of art by Simon Bartram, the prize-winning author of Bob the Man on the Moon and other children’s books.

Thanks to both of them for taking the time to answer our questions!
