BALSALL Common care home residents were quizzed as they headed back to the classroom.

Vi Bennett, aged 100, along with Dorrie and Evelyn from Harper fields care home visited pupils at Balsall Common Primary School as part of an intergenerational project between the school and home.

Sharon McIntosh, the activities coordinator at the care home, headed over with the trio to the school where the children had a selection of questions they fired off.

Sharon said: “Vi amd Evelyn gave a few cheeky answers which brought the class in to frequent bursts of laughter. It was a special visit and the friendship we have with the pupils and school is deepening all the time.”

Dorrie said: “The level of questions were very good and I really enjoyed answering them.”
