The pupils told the Free Press their favourite parts of the project so far.

Nicole said: “I liked the fire station. I enjoyed seeing the fire engine and using the fire hose. I’m not sure what I want to do when I’m older yet.”

Stephen said: “We went to the police station, and got shown custody and the children’s cells. I want to be an accountant when I’m older.”

Lewis said: “Tesco was fun, it was bigger than you think and I enjoyed going on the checkout. I want to be a pilot.”

Archie said: “I have only been on one, it was Leisure World. I enjoyed seeing the graffiti. I want to be an actor, I’m in the school play Pirates of the Curry-bean.”

Jake said: “I have enjoyed the whole aspect of it, how to get a job, what qualificiations you need and how you earn money. I’m not sure what I want to do but I’m quite good at rapping, so maybe I’ll be a rapper.”

Libby said: “I enjoyed looking around the Spa, and I enjoyed seeing the gallery. I want a career in drama – probably acting.”
