Progress has been good despite the rain. Osborne’s will be pouring about 3/5 of the ground floor slab on Thursday this week. There will be 20 full loads of ready mix concrete delivered to site. The concrete will be pumped into position using a lorry mounted pump with articulated boom similar to the image below. Concrete pump! The hoarding is almost completed and there are viewing windows so the pupil can observe the work and make sense of the noise! Work will stop for Xmas on
3JV were luckily enough to be involved in an Art project run by both, The October Gallery and The British Museum. This project meant the students were able to visit both these places and undertake Artwork based on the Exhibitions they were visiting. After this the artists from The October Gallery and British Museum came to Belvue to help collaborate all the art they had made into one big exhibition of their very own!
Yesterday was a fun day for both Belvue school and College as they came together to share a wonderufl Christmas lunch, hosted at West Middlesex Golf club. Everyone had a great time, enjoying food and songs together.
A couple of students decided we ought to decorate the woodland classroom for Christmas. Between them they gathered ivy from the wood and swagged it between the lights to create beautiful decorations and brought the woodlands inside to create a wonderfully winter environment.
The building work is going well despite the poor weather this week. On site work is progressing with the pile cap and ground floor slab preparation and subsequent pour of the concrete. The contractors are hoping to have the ground floor slab complete by early January. All very exciting but a bit noisy at the moment
