Care home visits

After the 3-5 children’s visit to sing Christmas Carols at Pleyfauld Sheltered Housing for the elderly, we decided to create a "Pen Pal" system with the residents. This involves sending drawings from the children, as well as writing to the residents, and receiving letters in return. It would also include some more trips to visit the residents to sing songs, play games etc. We feel that by having an intergenerational ongoing project with the local sheltered housing residents, that it would result in extremely positive outcomes for both the children at the nursery and also the residents. We can also talk to the children about emotions such as empathy, respect and showing compassion for others and relate this to the GIRFEC Health and Wellbeing wheel.  Some of the children visited the residents at the beginning of the year and enjoyed art and craft activities whilst there.


The rota for the rest of the year is as follows:


Friday 17th May - Sensory bottles

Monday 10th June - Fine motor skills

Tuesday 16th July - Sticker names

Wednesday 14th August - Science experiment

Thursday 19th September - Autumn leaf sun catchers

Friday 18th October - Halloween craft

Monday 18th November - Musical instruments

Tuesday 17th December - Christmas bauble craft and carol singing
