When the children of class 6T at Shepley First School tackle a school project they do it

When the children of class 6T at Shepley First School tackle a school project they do it in style. Teacher Thelma Todd gave her nine and 10 year olds a task involving buildings - and decided the best way to learn about construction was do it themselves. The end result is a very select detached residence in the corner of the school field, made of stone with a tiled roof and concrete floor. Retired builder John Fearns supervised and materials were donated by local firms. To add to the projects realism, detailed talks were held with planners at Kirklees Council and there was a visit from the authority's clerk of works. Now the little house has won the over eight years section of the Playsafe contest run by the Chartered Institute of Building and gained the school a £75.00 prize. It was built to specifications laid down in questionnaire answers from five or six year olds at school who wanted a miniature house to play in. Work started in May and the grand unveiling came after two months hard labour by the youngsters. Elizabeth Nixon and Thomas Gallagher open the door on a new learning experience thanks to the efforts of builders like (from left) Ryan Gill, Andrew Marwood, Alice Scott and Sarah Kennedy. With them is retired builder John Fearns, who used his years of experience to supervise the project. 12th July 1989
