Cards for the elderly

Hi everyone!

In that last week before the schools finished (w/c 16th March), my Year 4 children made some cards for the elderly people that had already been advised to stay indoors.  I have posted these out over the last week; some went to nursing homes in Irlam and some in my home town as well.

I have had a lovely response from one of the nursing homes near me, so I thought I would share it with you all. :)

Mrs Lee. 


Good Morning,

 Please see attached some photographs of our residents holding their cards made by Year 4 pupils at your school.  As you can see they were very happy to receive this kind gesture. On behalf of Richmond House Nursing Home, staff and Residents we would like to thank you for thinking of us.

We wish you all well and please stay safe.

Kind Regards

Dean Bent
