Taylor Wimpey is proud to help children in Milton Keynes get creative with school drawing competition
As part of our ongoing commitment to working with the local community, we held a drawing competition for the children of Oxley Park Academy in Milton Keynes. Encouraging the pupils to share what they thought houses would like in the future, the competition ran for several weeks.
Children were asked to take into consideration the need to protect the green belt and design something that was sustainable. From houses underground to homes that move, the children were able to express themselves through their creations.
The winner was awarded a £50 cinema voucher and all the children that took part received book tokens to use in their favourite bookshop.
Amy Hansford, Year 5 teacher at the school commented: “At Oxley Park Academy, we love to start each new topic with a dazzling debut, so we reached out to Taylor Wimpey to join us to start off our Green Belt topic for year 5. Having Mr Graves attend and run a session for our year group really bought a different dimension to the project. It allowed the children to have solid evidence to back up their balanced debates, and gave them an appreciation that protecting our green areas isn’t all bushes and bulldozers.”
