On Monday and Tuesday, the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls launched their new topic by finding out all about the Hindu festival of Makar Sankranti.
The children designed and created kites, researched and produced a presentation all about the festival and decorated the class cow with beautiful paper origami flowers. Additionally, we made delicious Indian sweets: chocolate barfi and coconut ladoo.
At the end of the day on Tuesday, we had the opportunity to taste the sweets and fly the kites. As you can see, some of the kites were more successful than others!
The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls would like to say a huge thank you to the friends and family members who supported the Year 5 and Year 6 Anston Greenlands’ Excellent Adventure evening. The adults in school were so proud of all of the children involved. They produced superb scripts which dealt with complex ideas, acted with confidence and sang and danced beautifully.
By the end of the evening, the children definitely achieved their aim of informing the school and local community about the seventeen Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Additionally they raised a total of £180, with £60 going to each of the following charities: War Child, Unicef and Water Aid.

On Wednesday 18th October, the Year 5 and Year 6 children gave a very special assembly. They have decided to run a ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ week for everyone in school, starting on Monday.
Random Acts of Kindness are little things that we can all do to make everyone around us feel happier.
Every day, everyone in school will be asked to complete a challenge. For example, on Monday, we will all be trying to share a smile; on Tuesday, we will be paying people compliments.
In addition, everyone will have the opportunity to send a message to a member of the school community, letting them know why they are so great. The messages will be delivered by the Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles each lunchtime; some lucky people will receive a little present too!
We are all looking forward to a very happy week!
On Monday 11th September, the Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles launched their new topic with a wonderful Wow Day. As you can see, children, parents and carers made a fantastic effort and our classrooms were filled with a wide range of characters from the past.
Towards the end of the day, the Y5s and Y6s discovered that our final event will be … Anston Greenlands’ Excellent Adventure!
Over the term, we will go back in time to find historical figures who have changed our world for good. We will find out all about the positive impact that they have had, linking these people and their actions to the seventeen Global Goals. On the evening of Wednesday 6th December, the children will put on a performance and film show to tell you all about it – save the date!
Each student will select a Global Goal which they feel passionate about, inform people about it, campaign for change and then create a film to show how the world will look if their Global Goal is achieved.
