THE PLATINUM JUBILEE COMES TO ANSON
On Monday 23rd May the children of Anson will be taking part in the Anson Jubilee celebrations.
There will be a special extended lunchtime. Children who are usually school dinners will have a special themed pack lunch provided. This will be enjoyed in the playground. As it is a special occasion all children who usually bring in their own packed lunch will be allowed special treats for one day in their lunchbox. This may include crips, chocolate and a juice drink. The children are encouraged to wear red, white or blue on the day (or all three at once!) so we can flood the school with jubilee colours.
There will be music from the decades, a corgi hunt and lots of creative tasks. All we need is good weather for the event so keep your fingers crossed on the day!
Every pupil in England will also be presented with a special book in honour of the Jubilee. We will let you know when this comes into school.
THE 2022 WONDERLAB AT ANSON
This week the children at Anson have been taking part in the 2022 WonderLab.
The WonderLab gives the children a chance to explore the world of science in hands-on activities and was devised by Mr Clargo and Ms. Bijlani and run by the Eco-Council.
Pupils from Reception to Year 6 have been exploring the planets, sliding down friction benches, playing with tangrams, exploring reflections and firing rockets with different levels of force.
There has been a huge buzz of excitement at every session as the children are supported to have fun with science.
At each activity station the Eco-Council have been on-hand to explain the science and support the children to access the activities. Have a chat with your child and see what they enjoyed the most.
We would like to thank Mr Clargo, Ms. Bijlani and the Eco-Council for all their work this week.
ANSON RADIO INTERVIEW: ALEX SCOTT
This week we are finally delighted to reveal that footballer, presenter, Olympian and dancer Alex Scott visited Anson earlier this month.
As part of the launch of the 2022 Women’s Euros, Anson Primary School was one of two schools nationally to receive a visit from a professional footballer. She was accompanied by the team at Lego (sponsors of the event) and worked with children in Victoria to explore their inspirations and role models.
While she was here, the children also recorded a video with Alex which will help to launch a competition in schools across the country.
She also took part in an exclusive interview on Anson Radio where Anisa and Amelia (5H), interrogated her about her career, Strictly Come Dancing and the Euros. Both presenters were amazing and produced a stunning interview. You can listen to the chat with Alex on the school website by visiting the Anson Radio pages.
OLIVE ROAD STREET PARTY
A group of local residents are organising a Street Party for the Platinum Jubilee and as well as all the free local music, junk modelling, representation from local associations and groups there's also loads of great (and free) stuff lined up for kids of all ages.
The party takes place on Sunday 5th June and the organisers have been in touch and have opened the street party up to the families and children at Anson.
So, whether you are looking to celebrate the Jubilee or just meet people in the local community we recommend joining the fun!
