This was a session full of surprises and delights
Fresh from their trip to the Archives, the children were keen to tell the residents all about the visit and the things they had discovered.
It wasn’t just the Archive All-Stars they talked about; several had found out things specially for the residents, like details about spitfires and pictures of Terry Butcher, and the residents were clearly impressed and moved by what the children told them.

Then it was time to share their discoveries with the residents; it was immediately obvious that they were captivated by what the children had found out.
Talking about the Waves—the Lowestoft Women’s Football Club that won the WFA in 1983 and Terry Butcher gave adults and children alike the chance to share the knowledge and experience.
For example, Stan has his picture of Terry Butcher on the table in front of them.
Then it was time for the residents to surprise the children—with the beautiful clay discs they’d made the previous week.
The children were well impressed; they spent the rest of the session helping to paint them gold.
Working together like this is a wonderful opportunity to chat, and there were definitely some very kind and considered conversations going on; the children were focused, attentive and absolutely brilliant.
