Children at the Infant school who have taken part in Construction Club this year have been excited to take part in the Ivor Goodsite Hoardings competition recently.
Mr Lowles, from Laing O’Rourke, contacted school to offer the opportunity to take part in the competition and design hoardings boards for his Samlesbury Construction site.
The children were keen to take on this challenge and thought carefully about the brief to promote considerate construction. After much discussion, the children took inspiration from the natural world and decided they wanted to celebrate mini-beasts as ‘Nature’s Constructors’. The children set to work painting their favourite mini-beasts and talking about the impact these little creatures can have on the world around us.
The current cohort of children were joined by children from the previous groups who worked hard at home to paint their own mini-beasts to add to the designs. The children worked hard to meet a tight deadline and the finished paintings were compiled to create two colourful display boards. Mr Lowles was pleased to come and view the boards which were photographed and entered into the competition.
The photos of the boards will now be used to create all-weather boards and attached to the hoardings at the front of the Samlesbury construction site. Construction Club are excited to see this next stage of production and are also eagerly awaiting news of the competition. We will keep you updated with any news and also get more photos of the hoardings board designs once they are in situ.
The children have loved taking part in this challenge and are very proud of their finished hoardings design. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Lowles for enabling Construction Club to take part in this competition and providing a very positive link with school.
We would also like to give a special mention to parents who have supported children in painting mini-beasts at home to add to the design, your support is greatly appreciated.
