Year 5 Visit Abbeyfields

30th January 2019

As part of their high-profile Junior Prince's Award with Skillforce; Year 5 has been planning a community action project.  This included making contact with Abbeyfield House in Alnwick.  The children had made and decorated gifts for the residents, and once there - sang some well-known songs and read some poetry.  The children then spent time mingling and chatting with the residents.  Their mature and friendly approach was commented upon by the staff and the children really enjoyed the experience of spending time with older people in our community.
