Lockdown Initiatives

During the lockdown, Canford pupils also adapted their usual face to face contact with residential homes, educational support for local primary schools and community projects in creative ways to maintain communications.  These included:

·       as Bingo callers recording draw numbers to allow Care Home and Nursing Home residents to play

·       assisting staff at the Wimborne Model Town writing code for some of their displays

·       groups of musicians have been live streaming concerts to residents in local care homes/day centres

·       recordings reading a poem or story shared with local primary schools and nursing homes

·       recordings giving training / fitness clips shared with the local primary schools and middle schools

·       recordings delivering French / Spanish vocabulary worksheets/word searches for primary schools

·       a new e-newsletter with lots of educational activities for primary school children

·       a Canford book club to produce a range of book reviews, both fiction and non-fiction, plus promotional material in the form of PowerPoint image slides for pupils in local schools as well as for current pupils and staff
