Lunch Times

Lunch times are happy and busy at Ansdell.  We enjoy sitting together and having time to chat with friends from different classes.  Pupils have time to sit with their siblings if they wish to and our Year 6 pupils spend time with their buddies in Reception Class.  On sunny days, we wheel the dining room tables outside and enjoy our lunch in the sun. 

We like to keep active so Linus from AFC Fylde leads lunchtime games in Key Stage 2 and Mrs Hull, our Key Stage 1 Lunchtime Sports Lead, organises games in Key Stage 1.  This helps us to ensure that all of our pupils get at least 30 minutes activity every day.

At the end of the day, our teachers come out onto the playground with the children so that we can catch up with parents and see everyone home safely.

We have lots of after school clubs and activities and APS Extra offers after school child care.  Information is sent out over the year to inform parents of the clubs on offer.
