There was something of a theme when young pupils from St Michael’s Primary School proved they were singing stars by performing to elderly residents of Helston.

The year one pupils visited Godolphin Care Home, where they began by singing Catch a Falling Star, before performing the full version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and ending with Reach for the Stars.

The elderly residents and their carers enjoyed the singing so much that they wanted an encore, which the children were pleased to perform.

Afterwards the children spent some time speaking to the residents.

Joshua and Bailey from 1B were amazed that one lady was nearly 100 years old. Joshua said: “We have been counting in tens this morning in maths and 100 is a lot of tens!”

Before heading back to school, the children enjoyed some refreshments that the staff at Godolphin put on for them.

Both year one classes thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon out, which ended their topic ‘Starry Night’.

Jobe from 1B summed up the feeling, saying: “I really enjoyed singing to the old people. I would like to go there again.”
