School Room in a Care Home
The reception children have been involved in a very exciting project during the summer term. Each week 10 of them have visited residents at Cornelia Heights residential home and during their visit they have engaged in a range of activities. The residents have loved seeing the children and each week the children have had lunch with them. The project was run by independent arts and as the project progressed we saw very early on that the children became accepting, tolerant and compassionate with the elderly residents, all necessary skills for ensuring a caring and inclusive society. This has been a worthwhile project, the children and residents have really enjoyed this. Information about the project has recently been published in a national care home magazine.
