Christine Allan: May 2015
After our recent Display the Anchor Boys have moved into their Summer Programme.
We began with a visit to Alice Holt Forest Park. We decided to go after school at about 5pm and what a great idea that was — the Play Park was empty! So the Boys had the place to themselves, and rushed around for a good hour before the cry went up "When are we eating?" — really surprised it took that long!
Hand washing in the lovely clean toilets came first, then they opted to have their snacks in the tree houses and carry on running about!
Later we walked through the forest stopping to make animals with sticks and cones, then on to the Maze and the new "tube" climbing frame. All very popular. After visiting another activity trail we headed back to the green for football, frisbees and general mucking about. A great night was had by all!
We don't meet every Friday during the summer, but our next meeting will be a Cooking Night so the Boys are looking forward to that. Don't forget we are always looking for new Boys who would like to come along; anyone currently in Reception or School Year 1 or 2 is welcome, so let me know if you have any contacts.
