A trip to Bonnyton house

As part of our intergenerational learning programme, Sarah-Jane and Zoe took a group of children over to Bonnyton house to work with some of the residents to play some games with them!

The children learned some new songs from the ladies and gents and they even learned baby shark in preparation for us coming over which the children were so excited about!

We played some ball games with the parachute and enjoyed a yummy snack!

We had great fun with the parachute

Our Daffodil Tea

Today we hosted a Daffodil Tea for the children and residents of Bonnyton House.  Everyone in the centre was so excited as this was the first time that our friends in Bonnyton House had visited us.

We had some crafts for the children and adults to try out.  There was a lot to learn about sewing from one of the adults as she helped one of the children to sew.

There were lovely conversations between the children and adults as they helped each other.

The children sang two songs “Little Peter Rabbit and “Pop a Little Pancake” and then everyone had tea and cake.

We are looking forward to our next get together at Bonnyton House  when we will play games together.

Preparing for Daffodil tea!

As part of our intergenerational programme, we have some visitors coming next week from Bonnyton house to join us for some tea and crafts.

The children have been creating some of their own decorations to brighten up our family room for our special tea that we are having.

The children have been looking at vases of daffodils and using pencils to draw their own. They then re visited their pictures and added in some colour. This afternoon we selected some green and yellow materials to create collage daffodils!
