Manor Place Nursing Home

On Tuesday and Wednesday 22nd and 23rd June a selection of year 5s visited Manor Place Nursing Home in Aldershot. This visit was part of the Apprentice topic which the children had been studying for the recent half term. 

The children had been tasked with creating a service to engage the elderly more in the community. They had already undertaken a survey in Aldershot and Farnham town centre's to survey the general public about what activities they thought the elderly would enjoy. Each group came prepared to conduct their service with willing volunteers from the nursing home. Activities included:
  • Reading 
  • Playing board games
  • Tea and a chat
  • Gardening
  • Bingo
  • Armchair aerobics
The event was a huge success and a new friendship between the school and nursing home has been established for the future. We hope to return to sing for them in the Autumn Term.
