Children living in one of Weston-super-Mare’s newest developments got to learn how their homes were built when they had a construction lesson.
Locking Parklands developer St Modwen visited Parklands Preschool – which opened in April – to donate a new set of educational construction toys.
Children got to dress up like builders and create their own buildings with the new blocks.
Preschool consultant Rebecca Taylor said the blocks are a ‘valuable resource’ and added: “We are very fortunate St Modwen is supporting the children and donating the construction resources to our new setting.
“Who knows, they might even inspire children to be future construction experts.”
Senior development manager at St Modwen Ian Guy added: “Parklands Preschool is one of the first occupiers for the site’s Radio Wing Community Centre, which enjoyed £350,000 in renovation work last year.
“When we heard that the pupils needed some new educational toys, we were pleased to be able to help out.”
