PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS ADOPT A PLOT AT TAYLOR WIMPEY IN LENZIE!
Pupils from two primary schools in Lenzie have been given an exciting opportunity to adopt a plot at our development of new homes situated off Woodilee Road in Lenzie.
Youngsters from the Primary six/five classes at Lenzie and Lenzie Moss Primary Schools have joined forces to explore our local development during two site visits to learn all about how a house is built.
The first visit introduced the schoolchildren to the initial foundation stage of construction, which was explained to them by our Site Manager Jim Nelson, and followed a presentation in class to launch the project that also included some very important health and safety reminders of never to play near a construction site.
Audrey Ross, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, says: “We are delighted to be able to welcome the pupils from both primary schools in Lenzie along to our local development in Lenzie for an exciting insight into the build process of one of our homes.
“I hope the children enjoyed the first visit and that they are looking forward to seeing the house transform before their very eyes!”
The next visit to the development is due to take place before the end of the summer term, where the pupils will learn all about the sub-structure stage of construction when the roof is on, scaffolding is down and the internal walls have been installed, as well as taking the opportunity to visit the showhome once again to see a finished home in all its glory.
Class teacher at Lenzie Primary, Miss Duffy, says: “Our pupils thoroughly have enjoyed their visit to Taylor Wimpey’s construction site, asking lots of questions and learning about the building process. They also discussed the dangers of a building site with the site manager Jim and his team, and what they need to do to stay safe near the site. They are very much looking forward to going back to see the inside of the house when the roof is on and it is nearing completion before the summer holidays!”
Miss McLean, class teacher at Lenzie Moss Primary, adds: “We’ve learnt so much already from the team at Taylor Wimpey, and the children are enjoying learning more about how new homes are built and seeing this process for themselves has engaged everyone in the class to get involved. We’ve also added some fun tasks for the children such as creating their own floorplans for a new home, and we’ve set some maths challenges. We’re all really looking forward to our next visit to see the progress that’s been made to our plot which will ultimately become someone’s new home which has also fascinated the children!”
