Middlewich Primary School invited to McCarthy Stone Roman Court
A group of year five pupils from Middlewich Primary School donned their wellington boots to visit the site of a new retirement living development.
The children were invited along to Roman Court by McCarthy Stone so they could ask all their questions about the building process and why and who the development is being created for.
The children, who are currently studying structures in their design and technology lessons, also took part in a Q&A session where they asked plenty of questions, and also practiced how to lay a brick.
Sadeem Khan, site manager for Roman Court, said: “When we chose to build in Middlewich, we knew we wanted to build strong relationships with the local schools and businesses in the area.
“It was great to host the children of Middlewich Primary School and to teach them all about the materials we are using here, and how important it is to follow the safety precautions when on site. “The children asked plenty of fascinating questions and were mesmerised by getting to see the crane in action.
“The children clearly have a lot of pre-existing knowledge from their work on structures in school, I think we’re looking at the next generation of local builders and architects.
“We hope to invite the school back for a tour once Roman Court is complete and we look forward to acquainting them with some of our newest homeowners.”
Paul Taziker, year five teacher at Middlewich Primary School, added: “The children were excited to pay a visit to the upcoming McCarthy Stone development that is being built nearby.
“In fact, many of the children had already asked questions about the Roman Court development as most pass the site on their journey to and from school each day, so it was great for them to learn all about the development.
“Our muddy boots visit was very insightful, and the children learnt important lessons about the construction industry and how McCarthy Stone is enhancing the lives of older people.
“We would like to thank both Sadeem and Jason for their time.”
