Adapting the Toolkit – A new way of working in these very different times
At the start of the Covid 19 crisis in March 2020 the Burnham Intergenerational Project sadly had to be suspended. As the weeks went by it became increasingly clear that there would be no opportunity for face to face meetings in the immediate future. Towards the end of the summer term we interviewed many of the children and older people who had taken part in the Project over the past year. Their wonderful comments and recollections made us even more convinced of the importance of building and nurturing intergenerational connections.
We knew that the headteacher and staff at St Peter’s School really valued the Project and we were delighted when they agreed to a six week trial using Zoom commencing on 4th November 2020. You can read more about our journey by clicking the link below.Click here to read our adapting the toolkit PDF
