Community outreach at The Red House residential care home

Our Year 3 pupils visit elderly residents in two care homes, and entertain them with singing, reading, reciting poetry, chatting and telling stories. 

Aims

Enrichment for others in the community.

Background

Six years ago, this visit was set up and has been running since as part of our younger pupils' enrichment activity on a Thursday afternoon.

Resources

Teacher Mrs Williams and two parents walk through the village to visit our elderly neighbours in a residential care home.

Impact

It's been a very successful partnership; the residents really look forward to our fortnightly visits during the Autumn term.

Pupil Involvement

Groups of 13 to 14 Year 3 boys and girls visit.

Frequency

Every three weeks in the Autumn.
