Year 1 had a visit from the ESH building group today, to learn about different roles in the construction industry. We got to know what an important role the construction manager has, making sure everyone on site knows what to do – well done Maira for giving good instructions. The architect has all the plans (you can see Joshua practising for when he is older) and our builder Hayaan had to build walls in certain ways to make sure they didn’t fall down. Alfie was the Quantity Surveyor, and he had to count the bricks and also use a trundle wheel to measure.
The construction equipment will remain in Year 1 for 2 weeks and the children will have the opportunity to investigate, plan, design and imagine.
