|The children prepared for meeting the older people by thinking about the oldest person special to them. They brought in a photo of their special person and wrote about why that person was important. Here we have excerpts from three pieces of work....|
oldest person who is special to me is Nana my Dad's mother, who is dead.
She wasn't like a normal grandma because she rode a motorbike! She also
had an unusual breakfast of egg, bacon and sausages. She always gave us
presents when we saw her even if it wasn't a special occasion. She was always
laughing and was hardly every upset. I've been to visit her grave.
oldest person who is special to me is Margaret Grant MBE. Margaret founded
the Brittle Bone Society in 1972 and raised about £1.25 million from the
Magpie TV appeal in 1974. Margaret has also been awarded an M.B.E. by the
Queen in 1990. She has a daughter with Brittle Bones too, who is called
Yvonne. Margaret is also special to me because she's kind, helpful, determined
and positive and she manages to keep all these things up even though she's
got Brittle Bones.
oldest person who is special to me is my Grandad (John Kyte) because he
taught me how to play football and cricket. If it was not for him, I would
not be able to cycle down the streets without stabilizers and he looked
after me when my mum and dad went away on holiday to America and the most
important thing of all is that he is my Grandad.
