At the beginning, they dug a hole and put cement in the holes as a guideline for the builders to lay their breeze blocks. I think the foundations are three or four breeze blocks high. We have had a delivery for more breeze blocks and to carry the heavy loads there’s a crane like thing you can put on a digger. It starts off with chains and then with a strong tape type thing. To get the cement to the place, they use a wheelbarrow and then they get a shovel and scoop a shovel full of cement and put on a piece of wood and the cement the bricks down. One of the machines is like a metre stick but it’s longer and it has a little machine on it, I think it tells you how deep it is. At the moment, they’re knocking down Handstand Hill and they are breaking breeze blocks so that they fit in the gaps.

Hi, I'm Connor and I will be writing a blog about the build that is happening in school because, I think it is very interesting and I'm sure that you would like to know whats happening!
The foundations are now finished from what I can see and they have started to lay breeze blocks (long and grey bricks). Its all very exciting!
