Anston Greenlands’ Escape Room

We Escaped the Room (Well … some of us did!)

The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had a fantastic time in Sheffield last week. Each child had the opportunity to experience an exciting Escape Room at Escape Sheffield. The adults were so impressed with the children’s team work, problem solving and resilience. Seven of the twelve groups managed to escape the room within an hour – have a look at our photos. Some children visited the ‘Witchcraft and Wizardry’ room and others had a go at the ‘221b Baker Street’ room. We picked up plenty of ideas for our own escape room, which brave parents, family and friends will have the opportunity to try towards the end of term. Watch this space …

Crucial Crew

The Snowy Owls had a fantastic, packed day at Crucial Crew in Hellaby on Thursday 4th October. In the morning, Y6 pupils found out about responsible public transport use, how to stay safe when crossing the road, the consequences of arson and what to do in the event of a house fire. Over the afternoon, First Aid was covered in an informative and fun workshop. Additionally, the children took part in a courtroom scenario (with a rather scary trip to a prison cell).

 

The pupils threw themselves into each activity with enthusiasm. Their contributions to the discussions and scenarios were superb. Adults from school were all 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; as you can see, we all thought the bus driver was very cool!

The Great Escape!

On Thursday 6th September, a fantastic new topic was launched in Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls. To great excitement, the children found out that they will be spending the term creating an Escape Room for family and friends. Before they are able to do this, both classes will have the opportunity to experience a real life Escape Room at Escape Sheffield!

During the morning and afternoon, the children proved that they are more than up to the challenge by completing a range of mathematical puzzles. They solved riddles, used a cipher wheel, answered a QR code quiz and used symbols to crack codes.

Watch this space – we’ll update you with our plans for our very own Lemony Snicket themed Escape Room over the next few weeks. The children are very excited to make a start…
