Children in year five from St Peter’s C of E Primary School in Henfield got their hands dirty on a building site this week, as they visited Barratt Homes’ Bishop Park development in the village.

The educational visit saw the children build a wall, providing an element of fun to the important message of staying safe on and around building sites.

Alongside learning about staying safe on a construction site, the children were also taught about the materials and work that goes into building houses, and the opportunities available in the construction industry.

The pupils also met with Barratt’s mascot, Barry, and took home a goodie bag at the end of the day.
