A Sanctuary Care home in Hersden enjoyed sweet treats and storytelling when they were joined by local primary school children for the morning.
The team and residents at Meadow View Residential Care Home on Blackthorn Road welcomed youngsters aged five to seven, from Hersden Village Primary School on Shaftesbury Road as part of the class’s community project.
The children came equipped with their reading books, entertaining the residents with their stories, and were greeted with scrumptious cupcakes specially made by the home’s chef for the visit.
Commenting on the special visit, Miss Abbe Mills, teacher of the young pupils said: “We had a fantastic trip to Meadow View, talking about the history of Hersden and showcasing our amazing reading in years 1 and 2 to the residents.
“The visit brought the children’s learning on ‘Our Local Community’ to life and I am excited to further our plans to make regular visits to the home.”
One of Miss Mills’ class added: “I loved the trip, I had so much fun!”
The home’s activities leader, Katherine Hammond, said: “Our residents absolutely loved the visit; their faces lit up and they listened delightedly as the children read their stories and chatted away– we are really looking forward welcoming them to the home again soon.”
