Christine Allan: December 2015
The Anchor Boys have had a very busy month so far!
At the start of the month we were thinking about Remembrance Day and some of you will have seen the poster in the Prayer corner with the thoughts from the Boys.
The Anchor Boy Fun Day takes place early next year so we have to begin the Frieze soon and this year we are tackling the story of the "Big Catch of Fish". We have been luck to be given a real "Keep net" from one of the parents so we will be able to use this to put our decorated fish inside as part of the frieze.
The highlight of the month has been our "race "night! The Boys made hobby horses from swimming "Noodles" and scraps of material and then we had races in the Foyer — great hilarity and noise! The horses were judged and rosettes awarded for the fastest horse, the one with the best name, the one which looked most like his owner etc! A great night but not one to be attempted too often!
Now we are looking forward to Christmas and making decorations. Our last night is 11th December and we meet again on Friday 8th January 2016
We are always pleased to welcome new Boys of any age — Anchors from school year one and older Boys can be fitted into the Junior section or Company section.
