April 2021 - Postcards from Dartmouth Academy

The wonderful postcards the children of Dartmouth Academy created are now proudly on display in our dining area. Perfect injection of colour to brighten the moods of our ladies and gents.

 

We also did some of our own works of art and created thank you cards to send back to the children in the early years classes.

The children are learning about life stages and ageing and our ladies and gents wrote down some wonderful advice to the youngsters.

 

As the restrictions ease up we would love to invite some of the children to visit and further build on the connections between the young and the elderly.

April 2021 - Fun cupcake decorating

This was a fully engaging activity for those who wanted to give it a try themselves, others required some support and guidance and for some they simply were involved by choosing what colour icing and toppings they would like on their own personal cupcakes. Everyone enjoyed eating the results. Hyne Town House Bakers.. its safe to say we all did very well! Even managed a few St George themed ones to mark the day.
