pupils build up knowledge during construction site visit
group of 60 pupils from Berrow School donned hard hats and high
visibility jackets when they visited a building site in
Burnham-On-Sea this week.
The 5-7 year-olds are currently working on a Houses and
Homes project and when Persimmon found out, staff invited
the youngsters to the Berrow Court development to get an up-close
look at the construction.
Berrow School's Year 1 Class Teacher told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We knew the childrens project about buildings would
benefit from an expert getting involved and were thrilled when
Persimmon invited us to the Berrow Court development."
"Its right on our doorstep and the tour of the site
presented the pupils with the perfect opportunity for them to
ask questions, see building tools and materials first hand and
learn more about the changes taking place on site."
Bob Simpson, site manager at Berrow Court, added: "It was
obvious from the many questions the children asked that they were
fascinated by whats happening at the development and Im
sure they left Berrow Court knowing that their school work has
been bought to life."
