Live to learn, learn to live
Through one of our parents, year 4 have paired up with a residential home for the elderly. They have been sent the names of the residents and some information about each person ,which they really enjoyed reading. They have worked hard to make some beautiful quality Christmas cards and gifts to send. They even learnt how to wrap them. We are looking forward to further links with the care home next year.
