Merry Christmas from everyone at Anston Greenlands

French Christmas Market

On Monday 16th December, the Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles held a spectacular French Christmas Market for the local community and the younger children in school. As you can see, there was a café serving delicious French food and drinks, games of Bingo, Dobble and Pelmanism to help younger children learn French, and a range of beautiful decorations to buy. The hot chocolate reindeer and Santa Sleighs proved very popular, as did the chocolate tombola. In the hall, a variety of games, such as Spin the Wheel, Lucky Dip and raffle went down a treat. The Photomaton (or photo booth) was lots of fun. The adults involved were so impressed with the children’s versatility and independence.

In total, a fantastic amount of £250 was raised. We were delighted to welcome our friends from Kindness & Co into school on Friday to accept our donation.

A huge thank you to all parents, friends and carers for your support and your fabulous French accents!

After a great deal of hard work and resilience, the Snowy Owls have completed the buildings for our French high street. Aren’t they beautiful?

French Christmas Market Adverts

Take a look at Golden Eagles’ and Snowy Owls’ adverts for their French Christmas Market stalls:

 

Anti-Bullying Week

Next week is National Anti-Bullying week.

Our Anti-Bullying Champions have sent a letter to all of the children in school, asking them to come in odd socks on Tuesday for National Odd Socks Day. It’s an opportunity to encourage everyone to express themselves, and to celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

All children have also been invited to take part in a competition to design a pair of odd socks – entries should be sent to either the Golden Eagles or the Snowy Owls classroom.

There will be no charge for either of these events.

The Anti-Bullying Champions will be running an assembly on Wednesday, during which the competition winners will be announced.

Restart a Heart Day

On Wednesday 16th October, children across school took part in activities linked to national Restart A Heart Day. Year 6 were particularly lucky to benefit from the expertise of players and staff from Rotherham Titans Rugby Club. As you can see, the children had plenty of hands-on opportunities to try out CPR on Rescue Annie Mannequins. It was an extremely useful, important morning.

Crucial Crew

The Snowy Owls had a fantastic, packed day at Crucial Crew in Hellaby on Wednesday 9th October. In the morning, Y6 pupils took part in a First Aid workshop, having a go at putting each other in the recovery position. They also learnt about knife crime and hate crime and had a go at spotting the signs of Child Criminal Exploitation. Additionally, the children took part in a courtroom scenario (with a rather scary trip to a prison cell).

Over the afternoon, the Snowy Owls found out about responsible public transport use and how to stay safe when crossing the road, as well as the consequences of arson and what to do in the event of a house fire.

The pupils threw themselves into each activity with enthusiasm. Their contributions to the discussions and scenarios were superb. Adults from school were very proud of the children’s excellent knowledge and their fabulous performance skills. Throughout the day, pupils were very lucky to work with a wide range of knowledgeable professionals from a variety of backgrounds. In particular, the children enjoyed the role-playing scenarios, such as the court room.

Sporting Success

The Year 5/6 boys and Year 5/6 girls cricket teams celebrated their success at the Dinnington PE Awards Evening last Friday as the Primary School Festival winter for 2019.

Additionally, four students were recognised as Primary PE Champions for their enthusiasm and commitment to sport at Greenlands.

The Tempest

The Snowy Owls have been having a great time exploring the story of ‘The Tempest’ in preparation for our performance at Magna on Tuesday 9th July.

In these pictures, you can see the ‘Whoosh’ that we held in the woodland area, where we found out about the plot and characters.

These photographs were taken during our first workshop with Emma. You can see us exploring Caliban and the island spirits.

Here we are telling the whole story through a series of freeze frames.
