Students from Year 5 visited Lewisham Hospital this week as part of their community project. The purpose of the visits was to visit the elderly on Oak and Elm wards and to have conversations with the patients about their earlier life experiences during the war and whilst at school.
The children had such interesting conversations and heard about evacuations, rationing, telephone boxes and life before computer games were even invented! The children also developed their confidence and social skills and were perfect ambassadors for St. Mary’s school. T
he children will now do some creative writing and artwork which is due to be exhibited – so watch this space
