Aaron Wise 9th Feb, 2017

YOUNGSTERS from a Worcester school popped into their local care home to share their favourite books with residents.

Year six pupils from St Clement’s CE Primary School visited Sanctuary Care’s Regent Residential Care Home as part of National Storytelling Week.

Armed with their favourite novels, including ‘The Famous Five’, ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ and Roald Dahl’s ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, the Henwick Road schoolchildren shared the well-known novels with the residents.

Teacher Tina Brown, said: “It was so great to hear how much the residents enjoyed our visit for National Storytelling Week.

“We always encourage our students to read, so it was a joy to see our students doing just that.”

Bridie Gray, the home’s activities leader said: “Our residents’ faces lit up when the pupils arrived to share their favourite novels with them.

“Not only did the students sound fantastic and were very expressive, but their visit also brought back many wonderful memories of when some of our residents used to read to their own children or grandchildren.”
