The children have been really inspired by the men who have been pollarding the trees in the grounds this week (and we have all learned a new word – it means cutting the trees right back so that new young branches will grow). They have been acting it out in their play with ladders, rope harnesses and a pretend chain saw. Look how busy they have been!
Some of the children visited Farnworth Care Home to sing to the elderly residents. They sang the nursery rhymes that they had learned for our Sponsored Rhyme-Along. The residents thoroughly enjoyed joining-in with the singing. Everyone had a lovely time and it was a good opportunity for the children and the old people to make some new friends.
