Students at Floreat Montague Primary School in Wokingham recently had the opportunity to experience a talk on some of the machinery used to build houses with a team of representatives from David Wilson Homes.

The developer is currently working at its Ifould Crescent development, Montague Park, which is home to the school.

The children were shown a telescopic handler machine while Site Manager Jason Freeman and Forklift Operator Rhys Stapleton demonstrated and explained how the apparatus and other equipment is used at the development.

Patrick Pritchett, Head Teacher at Floreat Montague Primary School, said: “Since the school’s opening, David Wilson Homes has supported it in a number of ways and their recent visit to the playground to show our pupils how the machine worked has been a great experience for the children. Rhys and Jason were careful to explain in a way the students could understand and we were grateful for their time and care in giving the children a unique and valuable learning opportunity.”

Rob Allen, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “As a leading homebuilder, engaging with the local schools near our developments is our priority.

“We are delighted to have been able to give the children at Floreat Montague Primary School the opportunity to learn more about the work that takes place on our sites every day.”
