Congratulations to our amazing Key Stage 2 children on their fantastic production of Bugsy Malone. Singing, acting and dancing were all superb. We know that parents, carers, family and friends must be as proud as the adults in school. Well done!
Here are some of the other stunning entries to our ‘Decorate an Egg’ competition. As you can see, we have some highly creative children in our school … and who doesn’t love a good egg pun?
As you can tell, our judges had an eggs-tremely difficult job, but here are some of our winners, along with their prizes:
On Wednesday 14th March, the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had an amazing day at the Big Bang Fair, which was held at Birmingham NEC. There were so many things to see and do. Here, you can see us making and testing rivets, having a go at breaking a world record and waiting to see some fantastic shows.
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.
