We are looking forward to working with the Fieldside Residential Home. Our reception children will be going in groups every week to visit the residents and do some fun activities with them e.g. singing, dancing, arts and crafts, construction, reading, baking etc..
This is an amazing opportunity and research shows it will support our reception children with their:
confidence with unfamiliar adults
confidence in an unfamiliar environment
respect for the elderly
support language development
support social skills
It also will benefit the elderly too! Research shows that visits from 4/5 year olds help tackle loneliness and isolation in the elderly and it helps improve their health, care and quality of life.
