Sharing memories with the local community at Minard

minard-sharing-memories-1On Tuesday 7th February 2017 some of our local community neighbours from Minard village came along to school to share some memories from their childhood. Mrs Hay and her friends brought with them things which reminded them of their childhood and our pupils brought in some things from their earlier childhood. Over teas and biscuits we all shared our ‘memories’ using our memory objects to tell stories. Our neighbours brought old coins, school photos and toys from long ago.

Our pupils were fascinated by how different pupils looked 50 years ago and especially by how little a bar of chocolate cost! Our pupils were also proud to show their ‘Learning Journeys’ to our neighbours to share some of the things they have been learning this session. We had a lovely afternoon of intergenerational community sharing.
