BUILT TO LAST!

We recently won a funding bid to run a project with the school, Equal Arts and the local community. Many exciting things will be happening over the coming weeks and months so stay tuned for further updates. We are extremely happy to welcome Poppy from Equal Arts into the school community.

Sharing thoughts at Lindisfarne

 

Twelve of our fabulous Year 5 Dementia Friends were lucky enough to go to a local care facility to chat with some of the residents.  After our recent training, pupils were experts in making conversation with those who are living with the condition.

 

Mrs Peters accompanied the children and came back with some excellent praise!  Our pupils behaved exceptionally and were brilliant when chatting with the residents.

 

  

 

        

 

  

Dementia Friends

 

On Thursday 17th January, Kate from Equal Arts came in to run Dementia Awareness Training with our Year 5 class. During the morning she spoke about what dementia is and how we can help understand how people are feeling who have dementia. All of our Year 5 pupils are now trained Dementia Friends ... the 5 key messages are:

 

  • Dementia is not a natural part of ageing.
  • Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain.
  • Dementia is not just about losing your memory - it can affect thinking, communication and doing everyday tasks.
  • It is possible to live well with dementia.
  • There's more to a person than dementia.
