Deciding what we want to do as a career is something KS2 aged children will have started to think about. This PSHE quiz, written for children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6, is all about workplace stereotypes. It is important that children learn that their gender is irrelevant when it comes to work. Aspirations need not be limited by sex.
Long, long ago, all nurses were women and all doctors were men. That was so long ago that children were having to work too! We have long since moved away from such primitive roles. If you are a boy it’s OK to be a dancer or a cook, and girls can be engineers or builders too.
Nowadays men and women can do any job they set their minds to. However, some people still hang on to their belief that some jobs should only be done by one gender. We call these views “prejudice”.
