Anchors

Anchor Boys

What is the Anchors?

Anchors is our youngest age group and is for boys aged between 5 and 8.

What do they do?

Anchors have lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, music, games, sports, stories, going on visits, making friends, and working towards awards.

All of this is done as part of a balanced programme that is separated into six different zones...

  • Get Active
  • Get Into the Bible
  • Get Creative
  • Get Learning
  • Get Adventurous
  • Get Involved

Everything a child in Anchors does helps him to develop and to think for himself, in a safe environment.

What is the uniform?

Anchors wear a uniform consisting of a blue polo shirt and optional red sweatshirt. On formal occasions boys will be asked to wear this with school trousers, school shoes and badges that they have earned on an arm band.

When do they meet?

The 3rd Enfield's Anchors meet on a Monday evening between 6:00pm and 7:30pm.

Why Anchors?

Children of this age are developing rapidly. There are big changes in a child's mental, emotional, social and physical development. However, all children are different and have a variety of needs. The relationships formed with children at this age can be important in assisting them to achieve a sound sense of personal and group identity. The programme will provide a wide variety of different activities including:

  • Learning new skills: the dexterity required for arts and crafts, following simple instructions for games and activities
  • Developing confidence: given opportunities to do things for themselves, praise for good behaviour, taking part in simple role-play, mime and drama
  • Developing physical skills: co-ordination games, hopping, skipping and balancing games
  • Developing independence: being given simple choices of activities, short trips and visits
  • Developing a group identity: belonging to a group, going on trips as a group, taking part in group activities
  • Developing an awareness of the needs of others: learning to share and co-operate
  • Developing a personal identity: learning about how we are all different, looking at the different needs and interest of others

And most importantly... opportunities for fun and enjoyment!
