Quartz Class learn about foundations

The children from Quartz class had a look behind the hoardings of the school expansion project this morning.

Wilmot Dixon, the contractors, had mentioned that they were pouring the concrete foundations today and wondered if any children might be interested. Quartz class were very sensible when they made their way to the viewing gallery to speak with Graham (the Project Manager) and have a look at the machinery in action.

Graham spoke with the children about what makes up the concrete. He had to field a volley of questions – including an obvious, but slightly tricky, one asking how and why the wet concrete sets dry. He did a great job with his answer and the children, and adults, went away happy and better informed about construction.

Here are some photos.
