The MP for Oldham West & Royton, Jim McMahon, came to Stanley Road today to launch our very first Dream It Week. He gave an inspirational speech explaining what had motivated him to become a politician and how important it is to have dreams and to pursue them. The children had a chance to find out more about the role of an MP and Jim even brought his OBE with him to show the children. His messages about believing in yourself and working hard to achieve your dreams was a great start to our Dream It Week.
The idea behind Dream It Week is to give children the chance to think about their aspirations and ambitions for the future. We have invited lots of guests to come in and speak to the children about their jobs and their achievements. Children will have time to discuss their aspirations in class and consider what ambitions they have that they would like to fulfil as they grow older.
Here are some pictures from Jim McMahon's visit...
