On Tuesday 5th February Barton Clough’s Nursery and Reception classes welcomed residents from Lostock Court Sheltered accommodation. They called it our ‘Love in the Community’ coffee morning. The event was part of EYFS’s ‘People Who Help Us’ topic and the children had thought about who they would like to help in our community. They made invites and posters for the residents, and planned the activities they wanted to do. The coffee morning was an excellent success with really positive feedback from the residents and children.
Peter, from Reception said “It was really good fun to play games and read stories with new friends”.
The school are planning further events with Lostock Court where the children will visit the centre for activities with the residents.
