Anchors

Welcome to the Anchors area of the website…

We strive to have an action packed, fun night every week with lots of games and arts & craft projects.

We teach the boys life skills such as road safety and fire safety. We open and close every meeting with a short service where we will sing a verse of a hymn and say a prayer. We also read stories to the boys.

Our aim is for the boys is to:-

Learn new skills: the dexterity required for arts and crafts, following simple instructions for games and activities

Develop confidence: given opportunities to do things for themselves, praise for good behaviour, taking part in simple role play, mime and drama

Develop physical skills: co-ordination games, hopping, skipping and balancing

Develop independence: being given simple choices of activities, short trips and visits

Develop a group identity: belonging to a group, going on trips as a group, taking part in group activities

Develop an awareness of the needs of others: learning to share and co-operate

Develop a personal identity: learning about how we are all different, looking at different needs and interests of others

There are three activity badges the boys can achieve along with a service badge.

We have Halloween and Christmas parties planned along with our annual outing. We are planning visits from the local police and fire brigade. I hope this gives you a picture of what we strive for, here in 3rd Falkirk.

The Anchors meet every Friday night at Falkirk High School between 6.00pm and 7.15pm. The boys age ranges from primary 1 to primary 3.
