Goodbye and Good Luck Year 6!
Back in September we could not have imagined that their last year in primary school would have turned out as it has for our Year 6 children. Whilst they have been disappointed to have missed out on certain events, they were pleased to have avoided others….SATs being one!!
These children have been amazing, and after 12 weeks apart they came back together, picked up their friendships where they left off, and found the positives in every situation. They have been stars!
Not wanting them to miss out on all the celebrations at the end of Year 6, we managed to organise a Leavers’ Service for them in church, where they all shared their memories, prayers, and were reminded that God is with them as they move on to high school. This was filmed by one of our dads and is available for everyone to watch on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM6zA0c_X3k Although this wasn’t on the scale of previous Leavers Services, the event felt even more special and was just as significant to our Year 6’s. I must confess to having a lump in my throat, a tear in my eye, and a feeling of immense pride.
Being a very different year, with us all having to deal with the effects of Covid-19 on us and our community, we felt that we could not choose one child to receive the Governors’ Award. Everyone has shown strength, resilience and courage. Therefore, it was agreed that we would present it to all the Year 6 children this year. The clock will remain in school to remind us of them. Last year Oliver was awarded this recognition award and he has recorded a special message for Year 6. You can watch this on https://youtu.be/bGY4UmmX1T0
We would like to remind them that they have been incredible and would like to wish them all the best for their futures.
