Children’s Stories Delight Residents Of Catherine House

Posted on: 22nd November 2017

Linked to our Harvest of Reading celebrations, 12 pupils visited Catherine House Care Home on 21st November to read to and share favourite stories with some of the residents. Many of the elderly residents really enjoyed spending time with the children and were very complimentary about the children’s reading skills.

Staff who work at the care home commented that some of the residents seldom choose to leave their rooms so it was very special to have the children come in to see them and share their books and stories. They thanked the children and said that their visit meant a lot and would make a real difference to residents.
