Sycamore Lodge Arts and Crafts

For the last three years, Mrs Summers has been taking her English class to Sycamore Lodge Nursing Home and this week, her new English class made their first visit.

The residents are currently creating a jungle themed display and the children enjoyed helping them make crocodiles to add to the snakes, lions and giraffes they have already made.

The children gave each resident a card, which they had made, telling them about their recent trip to Beamish. The children shared their experience of being taught in a Victorian classroom and the residents enjoyed sharing memories of their own school days.
