Residents at Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale marked this years’ National Storytelling Week by inviting some special guests into the home.
A group of year five and six children from Woodland Community Primary school visited on two days to share their favourite stories, and in turn the residents told the children about their favourite stories from when they were younger.
One resident, Nell, recalled being upset as she was not able to go to the library when the war began. Lilly, one of the children from Woodlands Primary School, began reading to a Birch Green resident only to discover they were both called Lilly – they were both delighted by this news.
Abbie and Ben, two pupils from the school, were given centre stage to practice for their upcoming speaking competition. It was a last-minute practice as the competition was taking place that same night!
To finish off the afternoon Brad, another pupil from the school, had a surprise in store for all the residents, a solo dance he had learned to singer Ed Sheeran’s song Supermarket Flowers.
All the children from the primary school were very sad to leave, in fact, they have made a special request to their teacher to return to Birch Green soon.
