2nd Enfield Boys Brigade - Anchor Section

AnchorsWho is it for?

Anchor Boys is the youngest section in the BB for boys aged betwee 5 and 8 years in school years 1 - 3.

When do they meet?

The main weekly meeting is on a Friday night (6.00 p.m. - 7.15 p.m.) at Bush Hill Park United Reformed Church, Junction of Main and Third Avenues, Enfield EN1 1DJ

What do they do?Anchor activities

The Anchor Section has lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, music, games, sports, stories, going on visits, making friends, and working towards their badges.

All of this is done as part of a balanced programme that is separated into 5 different zones:

  • Body - fit for fun 
  • Mind - think and do
  • Spirit - God and me
  • Community - me and my world   
  • Creativity - make and do

Everything an Anchor Boy does helps them to develop and to think for themselves, within in a safe and friendly environment.

What else do I need to know?

Anchor Boys have a special uniform that they can wear. As everyone wears the same thing they feel as though they belong. However nobody need feel excluded because they do not have the right clothes.

Why the Anchor Section?

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!!!!
