Year 6 sing at Lewisham Hospital

Year 6 have continued their community project by visiting the Elderly Care Wards and seeing the amazing artwork that they created with the elderly last summer. The artwork has been displayed in a number of galleries and is now available to see in the hospital. It is a beautiful portrayal of the diversity of Lewisham market and all those who shop there.

Year 6 also used this opportunity to visit the elderly, sing some carols and hand out gift bags. The singing had an amazing impact on the patients and staff with many joining in or tapping along to the music. Music lies deep in people’s memories so the sound of children singing was very moving for some. The children were fantastic – well done!

Life cycles at the Horniman Museum
