Pupils from Oldfield Primary in Vicars Cross, Hoole CE Primary and Chester Bluecoat CE Primary had the chance to admire a stunning Lego model of Brook Street.
Last year, when the children were in Year 5, they were learning about the stories of the Chester street’s traders and residents.
Brook Street has been the focus of an innovative project called The World in Our Street offering a fascinating insight into the background of its diverse community.
The schools have worked alongside CDEC - Developing Global Learning, based in Boughton, Chester, in what has been a fascinating project. A teacher’s pack and website pages are now being developed.
Nearly 200 pupils across the three schools saw the model with many recognising buildings they had visited including the Chester Tandoori and the comic shop.
Pupils also spoke to the artist behind the model who said the entire display had taken four to five months to create and included custom painted signage on the bricks. The famous mural on the side of the comic shop was created by sticking a postcard to the bricks.
Director of CDEC (Cheshire Development Education Centre) Heather Swainston said: “We are extremely grateful to the Lego creator for making such a wonderful model of Brook Street which has inspired the children and I am sure they will be building more models at home.”
Many of the children plan to go and visit the Chester Lego display in Chester Market which features so many of Chester’s well known buildings.
