Party time at care homes
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.
