Suffolk Education Business Partnership
Workshop Programme in Mainstream & Special
As part of its promotion of National Construction Week, Suffolk Education Business
Partnership engaged Building Experiences to deliver Workshops for the duration
of the week in ten of the county’s schools. Workshops were used to
promote learning and careers in construction-wide industry and included,
Building Domes, Building Bridges, Making Models. 300 pupils age range 9 -16
years took part in the programme.
A great experience for all students. I thought the Workshop
enabled children with physical disabilities to participate along
with others in the group, so they too could achieve. A great
activity for team-building which benefit many students. Everyone
was involved and focussed – no one was left out. The Workshop
was well introduced and explained and the step-by-step instructions

Educationally the Workshop was stimulating and enjoyable. The pupils worked
as a team, used their imaginations and stretched themselves more that they
would have expected. It helped to increase their concentration, confidence
and awareness. It was an experience they would not normally have the opportunity
to do, and it was …Fun, Fun!

The children learnt a lot about working together. They learnt
the value of each other’s contribution and how to appreciate
the ideas of others.
They learnt in a practical way the maths of shapes and solids. They gained
an understanding of structures and how to increase their strength. They related
this new knowledge to the ‘real’ world..
The work they did will support and enhance their class work in science and
technology, in particular the area of structures will be informed by this morning’s
Some individuals who normally are a little ‘unnoticed’ in the classroom
had an opportunity to shine. It was an excellent morning.
