A replica house is being built in a primary school’s playground as part of a project to help educate pupils on the importance of being environmentally-friendly.

As part of its Fix Up, Look Sharp initiative, David Wilson Homes is constructing a 12-metre square ‘Learning House’ at Scholes Village Primary School in Cleckheaton.

Work on the house is due to be completed by the time pupils return from their Easter break on Monday.

The project also featured a presentation to pupils by a group of graduates and young people employed by David Wilson Homes. The presentation, which was designed to educate children on the effects of climate change, helping plants and animals, saving energy and reducing waste, involved the school’s Eco-Warrior group.

Scott Foster, marketing executive at David Wilson Homes, said: “It has been a real pleasure to pass on our knowledge and passion to the next generation of Scholes.”
