On Thursday 18th July, we continued to forge links between our school and Wentworth House Care Home as our Junior choir performed four songs for the residents and staff. We had a lovely afternoon and our audience was very appreciative; the residents especially enjoyed our song ‘Hey Mr Miller’ which is in the style of Glenn Miller!
This week the children visited the Life Education Caravan at school. There they met Harold the giraffe.
The children in Nursery helped Harold to get ready for school, using the items in his wash bag and talked about the importance of washing, cleaning our teeth and brushing our hair.
The children in Reception spoke to Harold on the phone and told him what sort of things made them feel happy. Some of their ideas included ‘smiling’, ‘going to the park’, ‘playing with my friends’ and ‘eating ice-cream’. 🙂
At Grosvenor Road Primary School, we are very keen to make links with people of all ages in our wider community. One way in which we are doing this is through a link with Wentworth House – a local residential care home for the elderly. On Thursday 13th June, members of our School Council visited the residents there to help them to celebrate their ‘Alzheimer’s UK Cupcake Day’. The children helped to judge the cupcakes which had been decorated by the residents, played games, chatted to the residents about our school, presented prizes and enjoyed refreshments. Our visit was very well received and we look forward to visiting again next month with our choir.
