Stratford youngsters try their hand at brick laying

Stratford Editorial 9th Apr, 2024   0

BUDDING builders from Stratford Primary School donned hard hats for a trip to a construction site.

The youngsters were invited to McCarthy Stone’s retirement living development, Romeo Place on Alcester Road, which is currently being built.

On the day, they met site manager Warren Caunt to see how new homes are built and ask any burning questions about the construction process.

Highlighting the importance of site safety, the reception-aged children, aged between four and five-years-old, were given high-vis jackets and hard hats before watching a crane in action and hearing how it is used on-site.

They were also given a demo on bricklaying and even had the chance to try it out for themselves, having previously had a bit of practice with toy bricks in the school playground.

Headteacher Gill Humphriss said: “The children had a fantastic time learning about the new homes being built in the community and particularly enjoyed helping to lay the bricks. It related nicely to our topic on construction by helping them to understand all the work that goes into building a home. What’s great about these visits is that they may inspire our young pupils to take up a career in the construction industry one day.”
