Carolling at Dawson Lodge

A group of Y4 children had a wonderful time entertaining the residents at Dawson Lodge Care Home yesterday. They sang carols, played games and enjoyed talking to the residents and were amazed to meet a 97 year-old lady who was able to tell them all about how she served as a WRAF in the Second World War!

The staff, which included one of our parents, had previously visited the school as part of the Archie Project, which helps children to understand some of the difficulties and joys faced by the elderly amongst us. They even provided some gingerbread men for the children to decorate!

Dawson Lodge, which looks after many dementia patients, was such a welcoming and colourful place and we couldn't believe the sorts of facilities they had: a sensory room, a pub (The Dawson Arms!), a sweet shop, an indoor garden and even a hairdressing salon!

The choir have been invited back next week to sing more carols and Mrs Hales and Mrs Paul are really looking forward to catching up with new friends again.
