Age UK Buckinghamshire are proud to work alongside local schools on intergenerational curriculum based projects. These projects are often centered around UK Older People's Day, which is on the 1st October. For any school project enquiries please call 01296 431 911.
We have worked together with local pre-schools to bring some of our older clients into schools to complete simple workshops with younger children. Our clients spoke to the children about their childhoods and growing up in WW2 England during Q & A sessions. Some staff even completed short cookery lessons using recipes based around the limitations of war time rationing. These were fantastic sessions which not only greatly benefit the children by enhancing their learning experience, but they also benefit our clients as they really enjoy meeting the children and sharing their memories.
