Inspiration, Celebration and Education
Year 6 took drawings (with positive messages) to be shared with the residents of Monkscroft Care Centre. We did this as part of our Random Acts of Kindness.
We created a joint piece of artwork with Monkscroft Care Centre. We created self-portraits and then they were combined with the portraits created by residents and staff. The piece of artwork was displayed in Cheltenham Library in town until the 16th December.
Year 4 had a zoom session with residents from Monkscroft Care Centre, where they shared their memories of the Queen's Coronation and previous Jubilees. We were so surprised to learn that not everyone had a television, and that they met in each other's houses to watch it on a 9 inch television!
Three lovely residents then joined is with our Street Party fun!
During Well Being Week, Year 5 Ezra went to Monkscroft Care Centre to smile and wave from outside. We had drawn lots of pictures to make them smile and loved seeing their smiling faces when we dropped them off.
Year 3 walked to Monkscroft Care Centre to perform our dance 'Walk Like An Egyptian'. The residents and staff loved it! We then spent time talking to and dancing with the residents. We shared all of the Egyptian facts we had learnt in our lessons. We had a lovely morning.
Year 4 went to Monkscroft Care Centre in their World Book Day costumes. We took our favourite book and some mindfulness colouring.
"I enjoyed spending time with the residents and reading to all of them," exclaimed Nadia Y4.
Year 4 took their school reading books and favourite books to share with the residents at Monkscroft Care Centre. We wanted to share our love of reading with the residents. Everyone had a great morning!
"I loved going to Monkscroft because they listened to every word we said of our story," Libbie Y4.
