Primary School Graduates

By Miss Laura Benson - Head of Primary/Year 6 teacher

First I would like to say a big THANK YOU to year 6 for a fantastic year, you have all been a joy to teach and I am sure you will all do well in secondary.

It has been a busy year, in History, we moved from World War 2 with amazing Anderson shelters built at home, to the Stone Age and then to Britain since 1948. It was good listening to the music from the 60’s and 70’s as well as watching the fashions change and the growth in technology.

In Geography we have studied Coasts, Mountains and rivers. The children produced some brilliant posters and worked co-operatively to make mountain holiday brochures. Science has seen us try different experiments from growing mould to making propellers.

Year 6 this year have been a lively, chatty group but also worked when they needed to. Highlights of the year have been our many trips, Jay cutting his hair, assemblies (which they helped me with), sports tournaments and camping.

It was wonderful to take the children to Polis camping. We all had a great time and enjoyed swimming, sand sculptures, cricket, savaging around Polis, walking to Latchi (I had blisters to prove it), Mr and Mrs H’s bbq and stand up bingo. The children were impeccably behaved and it was a pleasure to spend time with them in a less formal situation.

Have a wonderful summer year 6, see you in September!
