Children are rewarded for designing their dream home

22 January 2016

Two youngsters from Norton have been named winners in a Persimmon drawing competition after designing their ‘Dream Home’.

Natalie Mohammed, 10, and Archie Rowley, 7, from Norton Primary School impressed the Persimmon Homes Yorkshire design team with their vision on what makes a perfect home. Pupils from key stage 1 and 2 put their imagination to the test by creating colourful, inventive and original designs.

Andrew Carter, architect for Persimmon Homes Yorkshire, said: “As we are building just a few miles from the school, at our Westfield development, we were interested in seeing what a younger mind considers to be a perfect home. We were thrilled to see how this competition really sparked the children’s imaginations and thoroughly enjoyed looking at their entries.

“We were instantly drawn to Natalie’s cake inspired design which illustrated her architectural flare with internal and external designs, and Archie’s space-inspired futuristic home which offers an alternative look at the future of house building.”

Natalie received a Lego City Town Square and Archie was given a Lego Creator set, worth around £100 each, for their efforts. The prizes were presented by Emma Johnson, field sales manager at Persimmon Homes Yorkshire. She said: “Our winners can now make that vision a reality in miniature, building a ‘Dream Home’ with their new Lego set and exploring their own construction skills.”

Felicity Allington, a teacher at Norton Primary School, added: “We encourage our students to take an active interest in their community. Links with local businesses, such as Persimmon, provide us with valuable new learning opportunities.”
