furnace-and-minard-careers-4-sept-2016Medieval Historians and Firemen – what do they have in common? Furnace Primary children have had active learning sessions from both in the last week. Why? We have been learning about different types of careers as part of our “World of Work” topic and were visited by Dr Steve Marritt from the University of Glasgow Medieval History department (complete with armour) and we visited Lochgilphead Fire Station where we had a tour from David Gilmour the Community Safety Officer.

We have also been learning a lot about equality in employment and watched a fantastic film “Pass it On” made by the Equality and Human Rights Commission which challenges stereotypical thinking around certain jobs.
