Grantham care home residents are guests of honour at school concert
Residents from two Grantham care homes were guests of honour at a school concert last week.
Youngsters from Harrowby Infant School invited residents from Avery Lodge Care Home, on Beacon Lane, and Newton House Care Home, on Barrowby Road, to watch their final rehearsal of their ‘Planet Earth’ concert.
The children wanted to test out their performance skills before performing in front of friends and family on Thursday and Friday.
The residents were able to watch as the youngsters sang their hearts out, acted, danced and read poems throughout the concert, which was to coincide with their recent ‘Planet Earth’ topic.
Residents from both care homes thoroughly enjoyed the performance, especially hearing the children sing.
A spokesperson from Newton House thanked the school.
They said: “We just wanted to say a massive thank you for inviting us to your school concert. Our residents had a wonderful afternoon (and we did).
“The concert was fantastic and the children and teachers were very welcoming to us.”
Parents were invited to go and watch their children perform.
Harrowby Infant School deputy headteacher Sharon Leeson was impressed with the talent on show.
She said: “The concert was a presentation of two terms learning around the topic ‘Planet Earth’.
“We teach our children through real projects which is all based around giving the children a purpose for their learning.
“In this instance the purpose was to present a concert to the wider community which was a mix of singing, story reading, poetry, dancing and presenting.”
