Year 5 took a trip to see the Barratt Homes site in Henfield this week. We first had the chance to look round a show home – including inside the cupboards. After being issued with hard hats and reflective jackets, we listened carefully to the safety information, then went inside the building site and watched some houses being built. We learnt that it takes about 4 months to build a house. Finally, we all got the chance to help build a wall with bricks and mortar. It was harder than it looked!
