Southam Primary School call time on new watches

WEB Southam Primary School - Watch Donation - Taylor Wimpey Midlands

We’re lending a helping hand to encourage the youngsters at Southam Primary School to tell the time.

A £738 donation has been made to the Warwickshire school – which lies less than a mile from our Lilley Meadow development – to help pupils in Years 2, 3 and 4 to tell the time on an analogue clock face.

The project will reward children with their very own brand new analogue watch, once they’re able to tell the half past, quarter to, and quarter past times on the classroom clock.

Emma Longworth, Headteacher at Southam Primary School, says: “We’re thrilled that Taylor Wimpey wanted to help out with a donation.

“We have a number of pupils in Years 2, 3 and 4 who find telling the time on an analogue watch tricky, and we’re keen for them to be able to tell the time using both analogue and digital watches.

“On behalf of everyone at the school, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for this kind donation which will be used to purchase the new watches. They’re going to be a great incentive for the pupils!”

Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Midlands, says: “We’re committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes, and working in partnerships with local schools is an example of how we do this.

“We’re thrilled to be helping the Southam Primary School, which is so close to Lilley Meadow, and we wish them the best of luck with the project.”

There’s currently a superb selection of three and four-bedroom homes available at Lilley Meadow.
