All of the children were given a hi-vis jacket along with hard hat, and were shown around the Tarleton Green construction site by Senior Project Manager, Paul Winstanley. Paul talked the children through how a home is constructed, which was followed by a prize-winning quiz, testing their new house-building knowledge! Well done to Charlie Turner for being top of the class.
In addition, the children were asked to design some Christmas decorations for the Tarleton Green showhome. The competition was strong, displaying some fantastic designs – with the winning decoration being designed by Isaac Bond, who received the game Monopoly for first prize.
This fantastic day was topped off with some delicious treats, all of the children receiving a selection box and best of all an autograph from each member of the Hollins Homes team!
The children and staff had a wonderful day, with Deputy Headteacher Janette Higson, stating "I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Hollins Homes team for this morning. The children and staff are buzzing with excitement! Your time, kind gifts and treats were very much appreciated (along with the autographs)! Our school is delighted to have such a great partnership with Hollins Homes. Year 4 children absolutely loved visiting you all and got so much out of it!"
The Hollins Homes Christmas tree will be erected from the 1st December at the Tarleton Green showhome, and decorated with all of the decorations created by the children from Tarleton Community Primary School. The children and families will be able to visit any day of the week between 10am and 5pm to see their decoration displayed on the tree.
