The project team created an activity book for early years primary school children. The book included colouring, learning and reading activities pitched at ages 4-6 years old. The purpose was to help children learn and provide parents with an easy activity whilst children are off school during the pandemic. The book can be used for other purposes such as giveaways at school visits when coronavirus restrictions have eased.​

​​​​​This project supports construction workers and the difficult times they are experiencing with homeschooling as well as providing very young children with appropriate learning activities about construction, the waste hierarchy, role models, and reading.​

​​During lockdown, the contractor has not been able to access schools to provide the support to student learning that theyusually would. This booklet provides some support in the absence of face-to-face interactions.​

​​​400 activity booklets have been printed and distributed. The PDF document has been shared via the contractors parents network, where it has been downloaded and shared with the employees’ children’s schools. Also Islington Council schools network has been sent it and the possible reach from these shares could number a significant amount of children for a very low cost.

​The activity plugged a gap in the contractor’s education outreach and provided positive brand exposure and support to their employees during a difficult time of homeschooling.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
