Local housebuilder encourages kids to get creative with story writing activity

Inspired by World Book Day, David Wilson Homes, has donated cuddly toy dogs to a class at Bishop Wilton Primary School after encouraging children to let their imaginations run wild and write their very own short stories.

  • The class of 25 Key Stage 2 school pupils, aged 8-11 years old, were asked to write and illustrate their own short story titled ‘Wilson the dog’s big adventure’, inspired by David Wilson Homes’ famous canine mascot.
  • The story writing activity was designed to encourage the children to let their minds run free, taking Wilson the dog on whatever adventure they liked
  • To celebrate the students taking part, David Wilson Homes gifted a cuddly toy dog to each pupil, so they could take their very own Wilson the dog home
  • Pavilion Square offers a stunning collection of four bedroom homes, available to purchase from £309,995
  • Nestled in the picturesque town of Pocklington, and within walking distance to the town centre, residents can enjoy a wide range of local amenities nearby, making it the perfect choice for families and professionals alike

Sarah McCarthy, teacher at Bishop Wilton Primary School, commented: “We were delighted when David Wilson Homes asked if we would like to take part in a story writing activity inspired by World Book Day. It was fantastic to see the children’s imaginations sparked by the fun theme, they’re all really proud of their stories, as are we. They also loved their cuddly toy dogs; it was such a lovely touch for them to be able to carry on their adventures with Wilson after the story writing was complete.”

Simone Roberts, Sales Adviser at Pavilion Square, commented:

“It was lovely to visit Bishop Wilton Primary School and receive the children’s wonderful stories. They all put a lot of effort in and they’re going to look great on display in our Pavilion Square showhome. We’re always looking for ways we can contribute to the local community, and this activity not only helped the school and encouraged children to be creative, but it was also a lot of fun for everyone involved, Wilson the dog has certainly been on some exciting adventures!”
