Mr Spooner promised not to bore the kids too much!
Norman Street School Trip
World Group were delighted to welcome Norman Street Primary School, Carlisle, to our showroom and factory. The visit was part of their Enquiry Based Learning topic on buildings. The classes were also using the trip as a way of learning about different types of materials used for different things. Our showroom proved a very good resource!
Mr Spooner, Managing Director/Window Teacher, gave the VIP guests a 10 minute talk about why we have windows, the materials used, how we make them and answered lots questions that the two classes, Sun and Moon, had to ask. After the excitement of Mr Spooner talking, we thought it would be best for the kids to have a go, and two carfeully nominated volunteers picked a window style on the computer! They even pressed the special button that sends all the information through to our factory.
We thought that would be a good time to let them see how their window was made. Splitting into two groups, the first group were given ear plugs and taken through into the factory to watch the first window being made. The second group were left with a picture hunt activity to find the images taken round our showroom. Well done to the kids who found them all, however, some of them were really quite tricky!
After everything was finished, the classes swapped round so that both were able to make their own window.
We could see that the kids were all thirsty and probably needed a biscuit for the journey back to school, so we had a quick break before giving them all an activity set and giving them a big wave goodbye!

One of the questions Mr Spooner was asked, was what colours can we make windows in. Below are just some examples of the colours available.
