SMA Community Links

Every Monday afternoon, Years 2 – 6 take part in ‘Power Hour’ of enriching activities.

Students are involved in a variety of different enriching activities that they would not normally have the opportunity to experience within usual curriculum time.  On Monday this week, a group of Year 5 pupils made their first visit to our local care home, Leah Lodge.  The children told the residents all about themselves, asked questions that they had already prepared and listened to fascinating stories. The children were particularly interested in stories of what life was like when they were young, and a story from one resident about the time they met Princess Diana!  In the coming months, children will be working with the residents to plan a D-Day party, including learning wartime songs, making decorations and invitations and baking.  We look forward to sharing with you how they get on.
