Hi, I'm a bout to write a scheme about getting old for my Y6. One of the texts we will be reading will be Grandad's Great Escape. Before start reading though, I want to do some ground work around old age and am just wondering if it's too sensitive (given the climate) to ask the students to speak to an elderly relative about getting old or write a piece of poetry about an elderly relative or even ask the students to write an article about how they think the elderly should be treated. Is there another interesting way of approaching the subject of old age or am I on the right track? Thanks in advance.
