From the classroom to the show home – youngsters from Burton Latimer have been getting an insight into the world of construction with our Midlands region.
Around 40 five and six-year-olds from the nearby St Mary’s C of E Primary Academy – accompanied by Year 1 teacher Tom Wilson – were welcomed to the town’s Centurion Grove development for a special visit.
Complete with hard hats and hi-vis vests, the children were able to see construction work going on, learn a little about health and safety issues and gain an insight into what goes into building houses.
Teacher Tom Wilson said: “We are delighted to receive an invitation from Linden Homes to come and have a look at the work they are doing within the town, and relatively close to the school.
“The children really enjoyed learning about the construction process and chatting with the friendly Linden team – which provoked lots of interesting questions.”
Linden Homes’ area sales manager Karen Stockwell said: “We were really pleased to welcome the children and teachers to the development, and hope they enjoyed their brief insight into our industry.”
