Excited smiles lit up the faces of our residents when the children from St James’ Primary School returned back to Birch Green Care Home.
Following their previous visit, a friendship has formed between residents and the schoolchildren who couldn’t wait to get back to see us.
Heidi made a card for Vincent which read ‘you are a good singer’ and he couldn’t have been happier to receive it.
Gill Seddon, Activities co-ordinator at Birch Green, said: “We had another fun filled day with the children and they greeted us, saying: ‘we’re back’. They ran in so excited to see everyone.
“It’s such a therapeutic and beneficial experience for everyone involved. The children and the residents thoroughly enjoy themselves and are all tired out once the visit is over.”
Year One teacher, Shelley Lee, said: “We made cards together in readiness for give a friend a card day next week and Heidi wanted to make one for Vincent as she loves his singing and for Mo because she makes her laugh with her glove puppet.”
