B Cador: April 2020
The children wrote some letters to our friends at Wrenbury Nursing Home and received the following lovely letter back:
Dear Mrs Cador and all the wonderful children of Wrenbury Primary School.
We hope you are well in these difficult times, we here at the home are well and coping. On behalf of all the residents we would like to say a very BIG thank you for the wonderful letters you have sent to the residents of Wrenbury. We have enjoyed reading them together this morning. It is nice to hear all the amazing things you have been learning during your school year at Wrenbury. From Vikings to Greek Gods, Thor and Odin, Block Jazz paintings, The Girl of Ink and Stars and the digestive system.
Belle, your cockapoo Snowy was a good topic of conversation, many of us here have or had pets and we enjoyed drifting off topic and looking at different types of dog.
Izzie, many of us have read The Secret Garden, so we are hoping you are enjoying reading such a wonderful classic.
A few of our residents here have special messages for you.
Joyce Eaton would like to reassure you that "although things seem difficult now and you are unable to see your friends and family, things will get better. During the war we couldn't go out and if we did and it was dark, we had to take a light. It was scary and at times we had to stay in a brick bomb shelter. We couldn't read or watch TV or listen to the radio, we had to just sit and listen for the planes to go over. It may seem bad for you now, but it could be worse. You should use your time to read a good book or learn something new.
Like now, food was scarce, but we could not go shopping to get things, we had our food rationed and had ration books, what we were given had to last us a week. So, try not to panic, although this is something you have never seen before things will get better."
Vincent Horton wanted to say "thank you for your lovely letters, it is nice to hear form you. I also learnt about Vikings when I was your age and I really enjoyed all aspects of it. Try to take advantage of your time in lockdown., read a good book and see what new things you can learn. Learning is a wonderful thing and something I enjoyed doing as a child and even now as an old man."
Pamela Mottershead had a short but simple message to send "Do your work, behave yourselves, it will be over before you know it."
And finally, a special message from Victor Black to Laura Midwinter.
The winter is now over Miss Midwinter, we are now in springtime. I hope you are staying safe. Do you like gardening? If so when this is all over would you like to come and spend an afternoon with us in the garden? Keep learning and take care. Victor"
Thank you again, it was such a lovely pleasure to read.
YOU ALL MATTER TO US
