Making Sense of Dementia, Orchard Care Homes
Orchard Care Homes, a leading provider of high-quality care for the elderly, has launched a new children’s activity book, ‘Making Sense of Dementia,’ designed to develop understanding and remove some of the fear and confusion associated with the condition.
The book highlights the importance of interaction and activities for the elderly with a variety of ages. It features fun traditional games such as mazes, spot the difference, optical illusions, memory tests, word searches and much more. Every activity is linked to the challenges somebody with dementia may face, with many pages asking children to question what they could do to help.
By taking part in these activities, children will better understand the difficulties of having dementia as well as empathise and bond with family members who have the condition.

Bloomsbury CPD Library: Raising Attainment in the Primary Classroom, by Sonia Blandford & Catherine Knowles (Bloomsbury, £22.99)
Bloomsbury CPD Library: Raising Attainment in the Primary Classroom is a complete guide for primary teachers to assess, plan and excel in raising the attainment of every child.

For some children, this gap widens as they go through school and may never close, leaving them without the basic levels required to succeed at secondary school.
Experts Sonia Blandford and Catherine Knowles set out to help you understand the theory underpinning aspiration, access and achievement, and what you can do to close the achievement gap in your school. Bloomsbury CPD Library: Raising Attainment in the Primary Classroom specifically focuses on increasing access and raising aspirations of pupils as a means to improving attainment.
