Pupils take on building challenge

Pupils take on building challenge

Posted: 2nd February 2018

Not content with watching their new school being built, youngsters rolled up their sleeves and took on their own building challenge.

Pupils at Magna Carta Primary Academy regularly visit the site of their new school building to watch it take shape.

Building firm Morgan Sindall is working closely with the school to ensure the children are able to take all educational benefits from the process.

Helen Clements, from Morgan Sindall, spent a day with pupils, challenging them to build a wooden school model.

Children in reception and Year 1 – the only year groups at the new school so far – took it in turns to don their hard hats, protective glasses and hi-vis jackets to construct a mini structure.

Mrs Clements said: “Wherever we have projects under way, it is my role to make sure we are engaging with our communities.

“We will have more site visits with the children in the coming months, so they can see the process of the build from start to finish.”

After the practical session, pupils completed a workbook looking at various aspects of building.

Sophia Tanner, receptionist, said: “This is about making sure the children are involved in what is going on. We take them over to the site regularly. Morgan Sindall is the company building our school, so it’s nice for workshops like this to take place.”

The school is due to move in to the building, next door to its temporary home, in September.
