Haddenham St Mary's School has teamed up with Abbeyfield Residential Home in a project inspired by the Channel 4 programme 'Old People's Home For Four Year Olds'

Every two weeks throughout the course of the year, staff from the school take a group of children for different activities.

Says Head Teacher Karen Collett: "We have learnt a lot from our older generation friends. The children are loving chatting to the residents and it's lovely to see the smiles on everyone's faces when we visit."

"This week the youngsters played 'Bird Bingo' with Abbeyfield residents, which proved to be an absolute hit with everyone. I'd thoroughly recommend it if you are ever at a loose end!"

"We plan to do some singing, have picnics and hopefully invite the Abbeyfield residents to our school for lunch one day."

Grateful thanks to Gill Harvey for the delightful photographs
