Courtney's Care Home Visits
This term we have started our new project linking to the global wave 'intergenerational care'. Whereby school pupils visit care homes to take part in activities with the elderly residents staying at Courtneys Care Home in Furzton.
The opportunity benefits both parties, but for our pupils allows them to develop their social skills, empathy, understanding of others needs and have adults who give them their undivided attention for the session.
We took our favourite board games, reading books and had snack time with the residents. The pupils were extremely polite, and represented the school well and the residents all said how excited they were for them to return the following week.
We have lots more upcoming plans with the care home, including music sessions, ICT, and arts and crafts which we look forward to sharing!
