What a wonderful end to the school year we have had.  Our K2 children made us so proud with their performance of ‘Three Nanny Goats Gruff’ at the Science Museum.  Hearing them all singing our Anfield song ‘Cover the World with Love’ at the Blessing Ceremony and at their Graduation performance was such a highlight.

For the children who are moving on this year, I send them with my very best wishes for their future learning journeys. I hope that the special memories that they have made at Anfield International Kindergarten and Nursery will stay with them forever.

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Our K2 children amazed and stunned us all with their wonderful Chinese New Year performance on Friday. With such a short time to practice after the holidays, they surpassed all of our expectations. We are very proud of them all.

Check out our Facebook page for some photos and videos from the performances.

Following the EDB announcement of the Chinese New Year holiday advancement, we are so disappointed to have to close the school to pupils this week.  Staff are using the opportunity to sort, clean and sterilise our toys and environment.  They are also planning exciting learning opportunities for children on their return to school after the CNY holiday.

I am pleased that we will still be able to hold our lovely CNY events after the holiday and look forward to having families join us on Friday 15th February for the K2 children’s performances and for the professional Lion Dance on Friday 22nd February.

We wish all of our families a healthy and happy Year of the Pig.

After the excitement of Christmas, with wonderful performances from all of our children on the large stage and parties, we have begun our new school term with gusto!

The teachers have designed exciting themes to engage the children in their classes this term. As they know the children in their class so well, they have considered themes to motivate them, as well as meeting their needs and moving on the learning. These range from winter to transport to healthy eating. 

It was wonderful to be able to show off our fabulous environment with prospective parents during our Open Day on Saturday 19th January.

We are also preparing for Chinese New Year. The Mandarin teachers are teaching about the customs and why they are important to many of our families. All of our children are enjoying learning how to cook Tong Huan and our K2 are practising a very exciting performance to share with all parents on Friday 1st February. We are also looking forward to the professional Lion Dance at school on Wednesday 30th January.

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

This month’s Fairytale theme is really capturing the imagination of all of our children. Through well-known stories, such as ‘The Gingerbread Man’, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and others, the learning that the children have enjoyed has been outstanding. We are looking forward to a magical end to the theme with a Fairytale Ball on Friday.
One of the Anfield priorities is to enhance partnership working and community collaboration. One of the ways that we do this at the Kindergarten is by raising children’s awareness of the needs of those less fortunate than ourselves. Our children have worked with their families to create a Box of Hope for Christmas. The response has been overwhelming and I feel certain that many children will be thrilled to open their surprise boxes later this year.
