KS1 learn about local history and perfect their swing!

2023-02-05 11:26:23 jforbes

From Sheffield steel to sinking puts! On Wednesday, Y1 and Y2 had a fantastic visit to Kelham Island Museum and Paradise Golf. The children learned about the history of the steel industry, explored workshops and found out about the different crafts that Sheffield is famous for. The museum brought to life the history of the city, as we travelled back in time to experience life and work during the Industrial Revolution.
We also walked along the cobbles of Little Mesters street and discovered where the name of the local pub in Anston came from.  Finally we enjoyed roleplaying life in a 1916 house. We all decided that we prefer the baths that we have today!
After lunch, we popped over to the other side of the city to perfect our golf swing and evaluate the Paradise Golf course. This was in anticipation for designing and producing our own mini golf course of Anston and the area for our final event. Watch out for more details of this activity coming soon.

What a ‘crazy’ day!

2023-01-03 19:30:29 jforbes

Robins and Chaffinches launched their new topic today with a fun-packed Wow Day. During this term we will be learning about our local area, discovering areas of interest, identifying important buildings and learning about local history.  The children were very excited when they found out that during the term, we will be designing and building our own mini golf course, which will incorporate buildings found in Anston and Dinnington. Today we started our project by venturing out into our local area and looking at local buildings, including identifying some of our own homes on the way.  Back at school, we started making models of the buildings that we saw on our walk and we had our first taste of playing golf. At the end of the term we will be inviting parents in to school to play golf and to evaluate our ‘Mini Anston’ golf course.

Children in Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches have had a wonderful week. With parties, pantos and even a visit from Santa!

The children were extremely well behaved on our trip to see Jack and the Beanstalk and loved all of the cheers, claps and boo’s!

It’s been a wonderful week…oh yes it has! 😉

Nous fêtons la Journée Européenne des Langues   

2022-09-26 21:05:28 jforbes

Today we have celebrated the European Day of Languages.  At Anston Greenlands, we enjoy learning French, therefore it was lovely to see children coming to school dressed in the colours of the French flag to celebrate this special day. We started the morning by eating a selection of croissants, pain au chocolats and brioches, followed by a glass of jus d’orange.  Children were also invited to take part in a competition and prizes were awarded for those who came dressed as a French monument or a famous French person.  We were blown away by the creativity of some of the entries: it was a very difficult decision to choose the winners!

Over the past few weeks, children have also been learning a new song in French for the day.  Please see the videos below.

It has been lovely to hear French being spoken throughout the day all around school; from children in FS2 through to Y6.

Merci beaucoup to all the children; vous êtes fantastique!
