We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to join the residents of The Firs Nursing Home with their Boogie Beats sessions. These are fun sessions were we learn signs then retell stories through dance and music. We help the residents to join in with the hand/arm movements and help Becky hand out/collect the instruments from the residents also. We loved our first session; everyone was so nice and friendly. We will continue our links with the residents throughout the rest of the school year.
We enjoyed another fun filled session at Boogie Beats this morning. It was very windy on the walk down but we were very safe when crossing the road and held on tightly to our partners hand! At the session, we loved the parachute games and learnt/signed the story of the ugly duckling.
We had another great session of Boogie Beats with the residents of The Firs again this week. We had fun singing rabbit songs and bouncing rabbits on the parachute again. We were so well behaved that even the resident dog wanted to join in the fun. We have her some nice stroke and made sure we didn't hurt her when we were dancing! We want to say a big 'thank you' to The Firs for the very kind gift of Easter eggs for all of us. We appreciate the thoughtful gesture and wish you all a Happy Easter.
