Year 1 - Our trip to the new school building

As part of our topic on Materials, Year 1 was given an exciting tour around parts of the new school building by Heather and Sam. We were learning about which materials are being used to build our new school and why.

After the tour Heather and Sam taught the children about safety on a building site; possible dangers, safety equipment, the protective clothes operators wear and also about different types of machinery that might be spotted on one. During the presentation Year 1 demonstrated excellent listening skills and Heather and Sam were impressed by not only the questions asked, but also the knowledge of some of our pupils who have family members in construction!

We can’t wait to move into our new school building and would like to say a big thank you to Heather and Sam for the tour. 

A bright and eager bunch of young scientists!
Can you estimate how many bricks were used in the new building? Ask a Year 1 to tell you the answer!
