University of Portsmouth Visit Holbrook!

As part of the “Up for Juniors” key stage 2 project, children were visited today by staff UP For Juniors Logoand students from the University of Portsmouth. Pupils within Year 5 were introduced to a little snippet of University life and were encouraged to, even at this early stage in their lives, have aspirations and ambitions beyond their horizons.

Children took part in an amazing interactive voting experience, using hand-held electronic devices to give their thoughts and opinions on university life. Then, within mixed groups, they spent the morning engaged in four exciting activities.

Pupils were given the opportunity to choose from a vast array of university courses and decide on a possible future career. Other activities included: a roll the dice and earn purple information cards game: a ‘where can we stay at university’ activity and an incredible video with a seemingly unending list of societies and clubs open to all university students.

A big thank you was given to all of the adults from Portsmouth Uni for kindly giving up their valuable time.
