Chicken Run / Carry My Story

Click the picture to the left to see a video of our experience so far!

 Year 5 students have been working in partnership with Food for Life and the Soil Association to make links to our local car home Linson Court. The children have been visiting the care home to interview the residents and help build a chicken run. They are beginning to collect stories from the residents, linking to their Carry My story project. We are trying to combat stereotypes and loneliness.

On our first visit we dug over the area to make room for the chickens. We were joined by lots of parents and even grandparents! On our second visit we built a chicken run. The chickens love their new home and we are looking forward to visiting both the residents and the chickens again.

Our children  have written poetry and stories dedicated to the residents and their stories. They have also created a stop-motion video to show their experience building the chicken run. One child dedicated a watercolour painting of Tatra Mountains (in Poland) to John, as that is where he used to go skiing with home made skiis.
