Youngsters and teachers from Witham St Hughs in Lincolnshire took lessons out of the classroom and onto a construction site – as part of their school science project.
Years 3 and 4 children from Witham St Hughs Academy were special guests during an exciting visit to our Midlands region’s Cygnet Place development in the village.
The group of seven to nine-year-olds found out about the kind of rocks and soil at the development, with help from our site manager Nick Robinson and health and safety manager Steve Spedding.
They enjoyed getting up close to the materials and also gained an insight into what goes into building new homes – as well as the health and safety surrounding building sites.
Teacher Emily Broadley said: “We all had a fantastic morning and had a lot of fun while learning hands on about something which is relevant to our current lessons. Our thanks to the Linden Homes team for making us feel so welcome.”
