Here at Hollie Hill Care Home, we’ve been having great fun playing ‘swapsies’ with the pupils at East Stanley School as part of our Local History event.
We sent the school a collection of memories from our school days and in return they sent us a wonderful video presentation telling us all about life at East Stanley School. As well as showing us pictures of new technology used in classrooms like iPads and computers, we learnt that children today love maths because of a popular educational game called ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’.
The intergenerational story swap was great fun and the children also treated us to a rendition of the song ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ which many of us remembered singing at school ourselves.
Magic Moments Co-ordinator, Jen, said: It’s been wonderful for our residents to share their school day experiences with the pupils and to learn lots from them as well. Huge thanks to everyone at East Stanley School for joining in with our local history event.”
