Children at Stoke Park Infant School in Eastleigh are enjoying the first phase of a new ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ shortly, thanks to a donation from award-winning housebuilder, Linden Homes.
The donation of £500 was gifted to Stoke Park Infant Association, which has been fundraising for the project. The creation of the ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ will promote speaking and listening opportunities in both lessons and play time.
Currently, play space for the 270, four to seven-year-old pupils at the school is limited but the ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ is set to improve the space, providing increased play opportunities, helping develop essential communication skills.
Emma Charles, Headteacher at Stoke Park Infant School said: “We’re thrilled that the first phase of our ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ has been completed in time for the summer term thanks to the donation from Linden Homes. We’re half way through our fundraising and hope to reach our target to ensure the second phase of the project is completed.
“The new facilities will improve our pupils’ playtime experience to support speech and language development which is essential to their progress in both lesson and play time. It’s great to see large companies, like Linden Homes, show support to local schools and organisations like ourselves.”
Once complete, the ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ will include a stage to encourage children to perform, a storytelling throne, role play structures and climbing equipment to build core and upper body strength, not only vital for physical activities but also essential for writing.
Jo Dixon, Marketing Manager at Linden Homes South, said: “Supporting the communities local to our housing developments is important to us, so when we heard about the project the Stoke Park Infant Association are fundraising for we were delighted to be able to help.”
“We’re really pleased to hear our donation has helped the charity complete phase one of the ‘Magical Woodland Theatre’ in time for the summer term and we hope the children enjoy their time exploring their new playground!”
The school is located close to two of Linden Homes’ developments; Boorley Park in Boorley Green and Crowdhill Green in Fair Oak. Boorley Park is already proving extremely popular with buyers looking for a quality build in a great location. The development comprises a collection of two, three and four bedroom homes.
Crowdhill Green, the development closest to Stoke Park Infant School, boasts a collect of three, four and five bedroom homes with some homes backing onto open space. Both developments offer buying assistance schemes such as Help To Buy, Part Exchange and Assisted Move, helping house hunters secure their perfect property.
