A joint project with Lydgate School for Complex Needs, to design and host a community Tea Party

 

Sharing Memories worked with 10 students from Lydgate School for Complex Needs in the Spring of 2011 to design and run a tea party.  The aim of this project was to develop the children's confidence and communication skills by teaching valuable life skills such as cooking, hosting, speaking in public and socialising. We used many different visual art strands to make the learning process fun and varied. Both groups really enjoyed getting to know each other and devising ideas for the tea party.

The final event was very well attended by over 60 members of the public and friends and relations of both groups - including Jason McCartney MP.   The Lydgate students acted as waiters and waitresses serving the food to all the guests. Music from Eddie Armitage and a stall selling Sharing Memories books, cards and scarves ensured there was a buzzing atmosphere.

This was the third time we had worked in partnership with Lydgate School, and it is a friendship that brings so much enjoyment and learning to both groups.
