Roald Dahl brings primary school pupils and elderly together

ROALD Dahl has been bridging the generation gap in Skelmersdale as primary school pupils read their favourite stories to elderly care home residents.

Year four and five pupils from Delph Side Primary School were visiting Aaron Crest Care Home for Roald Dahl Day – celebrating the author’s birthday.

The youngsters read from their favourite Dahl books, including Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and The Twits.

Adrienne Ratcliffe, home manager at Aaron Crest Care Home, on Tanhouse Road, said: “During their visit, the children were amazed to see a record player and a singer sewing machine, as they hadn’t ever seen one before.

“It was great to see the children interacting with our residents – some of them are more than ten times the age of the pupils.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed reading and did not want to leave, asking when they can come back.

“They’re welcome back anytime and we’re already looking forward to their next visit.”

Teachers Marie Fitzgerald and Joanne Skelhorn accompanied the pupils on the visit.

Marie said: “We always love to visit the home with the children and they are always excited to meet the residents, talk to them and read their favourite books.”

Delph Side Primary School Year 4 pupil Cody, aged 8, reads her favourite Roald Dahl book to Aaron Crest Care Home resident Harry Coulshaw, aged 92.
