When I Grow Up I Want To Be... Hull Youngsters Get Construction Career Insight
06 Jul 2015

Ask most primary school children what they aspire to be doing when they get older – and professional footballer or famous singer will almost certainly feature on the list.

The world of work appeared on the timetable at Keyingham Primary School, where construction and architecture made a brief appearance during lessons, thanks to local developer Linden Homes North.

Youngsters aged between six and 10 were able to find out a little more about the house building industry when technical co-ordinator Mike Dee was invited to share some of his knowledge with the children in Year 2 to 6.

Mike from the Hessle-based house builder gave youngsters an insight into his role, guiding them through the construction process and talking about the importance of health and safety – which gave some of the pupils a chance to model some hi-vis work wear!

Visiting the school for the second consecutive year, Mike said: “It was another fantastic day and a wonderful experience to share information about my job with the children, and to be able to chat with them about the role of house builders within the local community and the consideration given to the environment when drawing plans for homes.

“The children were very responsive, and the safety gear talk and demonstration seemed to be a highlight of the sessions!”
