Pen Pal Project

Several Skyswood pupils have signed up to our pen pal project and written letters to    elderly  residents in our community to brighten up their days during these difficult times. The school have partnered up with local care homes and churches to put this initiative into action, and over forty pupils have already written letters. The Year 6 children pictured above were very excited to receive their return letters, and some of the residents of the Park View Care home in Chiltern Road have been so pleased to receive their letters from the children that a few of them organised a ‘socially distanced’ coffee morning where they read their letters out loud to their friends in the home. This is a partnership and initiative that we intend to continue long into the future!
