International Day of the Elderly 2020

International Day of the Elderly 2020

Thursday 1st October was International Day of the Elderly so our children at Nightingale took some time to appreciate the things that the elderly have done for our society. Year 5 thought about the old people who were special to them and the issues that might affect some of them, especially during this year. They discussed how it feels to be lonely or isolated and what we could do to reach out to old people who feel this way. The children in KS1 decided to write letters and draw pictures to send to our local care home. We hope they bring a smile to the resident’s faces.
