All Year 8 pupils have had the fantastic opportunity of completing a unique numeracy task today, which involved working with the rebound construction company Morgan Sindall. Pupils were asked to complete a specially designed ‘Business Challenge’, where they were invited to tender and put together their bid to design a primary school and hopefully win the contract.
Working with a budget of £8,000,000, the pupils worked in teams, deciding on roles and responsibilities and put together their best presentation for the client. All aspects of the challenge reflected the processes of how construction companies win the bids to design a school and the pupils saw an invaluable insight to the different jobs and roles construction companies have, in addition to the actual building element.
A huge thank you to all the pupils involved, their innovative and creative ideas were outstanding. Another thank you to Michael Little from Morgan Sindell who will be going over all the designs to provide feedback and decide who will win the bid. Da iawn blwyddyn 8, and may the best team win!
