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....
The 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.
The 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.
The 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.
