Small Great Things – Shenfield St Mary’s C of E Primary School

January 29, 2020

Small Great Things (SGT) is a child-led initiative supported by adults in school settings. It encourages and celebrates small acts that make a massive difference to someone else.

This month, one of the Small Great Things Champions at Shenfield St Mary’s Church of England Primary School wrote to the manager of a local elderly people’s home to ask if a group of children could visit the residents to chat, read, and share a cuppa and a biscuit with them.

The idea was warmly received and the Small Great Things Champions now visit the local care home once a month.

This is a great example of an intergenerational activity; a small gesture that made a huge difference to the residents as well as the children involved.
