Skillcrown sponsors Rangefield primary school to Build-A-Bear Workshop

 

Here at Skillcrown, we are committed to giving back to the communities in the areas that we are developing in. With continued growth in the following areas; Peckham, Deptford, New Cross, Hither Green, Hackbridge, Croydon, Thornton Heath, Orpington, Maidstone, Greenhithe and Stone, we felt it was an ideal time to launch a scheme, designed to give the local schools a building experience.

We want to encourage the next generation, our future in the industry, by providing fun learning opportunities for young children. Our goal is to show the children the power of teamwork and that building something new from start to finish is an enjoyable achievement. With that in mind “Build A Bear” seemed the most appropriate choice enabling them to experience this first hand. We are proud to focus our community efforts on improving the education of children and hope that building a furry friend is just the beginning for them. We trust that the community recognise our efforts in providing educational opportunities for the local children whilst inspiring them to create using their imagination.

Our first visit was by the nursery class at Rangefield Primary School in Lewisham to the Build-A-Bear Workshop in Bromley. The class had been focusing on “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” – Michael Rosen’ classic children’s tale – and by sponsoring the trip, we helped the whole class to create and re-enact their own version of the story.

A lot of the children in our class have English as an additional language so opportunities such as exploring our local community are fantastic for their communication and language skills, as well as being a great way to involve parents. Without the generous donation and organisational help from Skillcrown, this trip would not have been possible.” Nursery Teacher Miss Gilmore Rangefield Primary School
