Last week, we enjoyed some lovely group activities here at Lulworth House Residential Care Home.
Cece’s Nursery visit
On Thursday 25 April we were visited by a wonderfully bright and bubbly group of nursery children. The group of girls and boys played games with our residents and shared books with us. They also loved petting our Guinea pigs! A highlight of their visit was an enthusiastic sing along, which we all really enjoyed. Our residents looked very happy spending time with the children – and the children get so much out of all the attention and fun! We looking forward to seeing them again next week, as we have arranged visits every Thursday morning.
Friday 26 April saw a group of our residents working really hard in our dining room preparing vegetables to make soup for Saturday lunch. Our ladies and gents peeled potatoes and carrots and enjoyed chatting whilst they sat together. Our ladies also folded the napkins ready for lunch. The soup was a big hit at lunchtime and tasted delicious! Many thanks to our residents for all their help.
Sing along poetry
We had a lot of fun with our residents last week, as we wrote rhyming lyrics for Spring. We all enjoyed a good giggle as we thought of different ones and read them aloud. Some favourites were ‘My bald headed pig needs a wig!’, ‘The grass hopper never comes a cropper‘ and ‘The goat may not float in the moat!’.
After this, we were thinking of words to rhyme with ‘worm‘ and we read a funny poem about a worm talking, which our residents loved:
said Big Worm
to Little Worm.
“You’re driving me round the bend.”
“Don’t be daft,”
Said Little Worm
“I’m your other end.”
This was followed by playing ‘The Red Red Robin went Bob Bob Bobbing‘ – a classic old song which we all loved singing.
We all had a great time together enjoying the word play and rhymes. It was good fun and a super way to get us thinking of ideas and reminiscing about songs of the past.
