Sainburys Taken Over by Children!

This morning four children, Malak, Kristel, Isaac and Oscar ‘took over’ Sainsburys as part of Takeover Day.

After a tour around the store with Chris, the Deputy Manager the children set to work on the checkouts, managing the self service checkouts, in charge of decorating the store and inputting orders for the Café and Bakery.

Karen, The Manager of the store heard what an amazing job that the children were doing so came to investigate and subsequently the children have been invited to come back when they are sixteen to apply for jobs!









Takeover Day – Friday 17th November

Today was takeover Day.

The majority of children participating in this year’s challenge took over jobs today although some children will be still taking over jobs in school and also at The Little Gym during next week too.

Below are some of the pictures from today:








Takeover Challenge at MAECare

This afternoon, Noven, Kacey and Sophie spent the afternoon at the MAECare (Moor Allerton Eldery Care) offices. After a tour of the building they set to work making cups of tea and coffee for the staff and preparing the activity room ready for the arrival of the Knitting Group members.

They met and greeted the members, made them drinks, took the register and completed a range of other tasks and even so still found the time to make some pom poms and eat chocolate biscuits!


Takeover Day Interviews

Thank you to everyone who applied for a job and to be part of Takeover Day.

This year 118 children applied and it was a very hard task over the weekend to create a shortlist. There were so many well presented applications but unfortunately not everyone can be interviewed for jobs.

The list of children that have been shortlisted is up in the KS2 block near the classrooms of Year 5. Please check for your name and the day that you will have your interview.

Good Luck!

Takeover Day Challenge

This year’s Takeover Challenge will take place on Friday 17th November.

It is a day when you (the children of Allerton C of E Primary School) have the opportunity to takeover the jobs of Mrs Stott, Miss Linsley, Mrs Willis, Teachers, Teaching assistants and even me, Miss Whiteley!

There will also be some jobs that you can apply for at MAECare (Moor Allerton Elderly Care), at Sainsburys and at The Little Gym.

If you are in KS2 and you fancy being Mrs Stott for the day or working on a checkout at Sainsburys or one of the many other jobs you will need to complete an application form.

If you are shortlisted then you will be invited to attend an interview and may even be offered a job!

Ask Miss Whiteley for an application form.

The closing date for all applications is FRIDAY 10th NOVEMBER.

Good Luck!
