xs:any means "any element" so there is no way to do what you want inside
xs:any. You can write something like this, however:

<xs:group name="myRootChild">
  <xs:sequence>
    <xs:element name="specific-element-1" ... />
    <xs:any processContents="skip"/>
  </xs:sequence>
  <xs:attribute name="specific-attribute-1" ... />
</xs:group>
