Party time at care homes

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - HARVEST FESTIVAL -

YEAR 6 pupils from Heatherton House em­braced the har­vest spirit of giv­ing when they vis­ited nearby res­i­den­tial care homes to en­ter­tain and chat to the res­i­dents.

Shortly after per­form­ing at the school’s an­nual har­vest fes­ti­val, where the whole school per­formed themed songs, po­ems and even raps, small groups of Year 6 girls were taken to Abbey Court in Che­sham and Kings Lodge in Amer­sham.

The girls then per­formed their favourite har­vest songs be­fore shar­ing home cooked bis­cuits with the ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence and en­joy­ing some won­der­ful con­ver­sa­tion.

Year 6 pupil Vi­o­letta Smirnov said: “We all re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence. It was great fun per­form­ing and the au­di­ence all seemed to like the songs. I es­pe­cially loved talk­ing to ev­ery­one after we sang. The res­i­dents were so friendly and chatty and it was re­ally in­ter­est­ing to hear all about what school was like when they were young.”

To fin­ish off their Har­vest cel­e­bra­tions, pupils made a large gift of food and toi­letries to the Chiltern Food Bank, thanks to do­na­tions they had brought in.
