"For our World of Work day we visited John Lewis. It was an amazing experience because we experienced what it would be like to work in Retail and the many different jobs that exist in one business. My favourite part was having a tour behind the scenes and seeing the merchandisers creating their displays.
"We also took part in a workshop where we were given a product and had to try persuading the class why they should buy it. This was fun because we got to learn new things while researching the product. I saw it was cheaper to buy the 50ml perfume than the 30ml one. We also learnt how the career structure works in John Lewis and what the responsibilities of each job are. I heard about how John Lewis is run as a democracy and all the partners get a say to make things equal. After seeing what opportunities there are I would love to work there as soon as I am old enough."
