Using the Site as a Learning Environment
From the beginning of the project we instigated in conjunction with the school weekly meetings with pupils and our Site Manager. The purpose of these meetings was to inform the students as to the works that were planned for the week ahead so that they may appreciate how the skills they were learning in the class room could be applied in practice.
