Today I said goodbye to 30 children. Although I knew 5LM children from their time in year 5 during PE lessons, some children I am saying goodbye to after two years of being in my class. I moved to Leeds in August 2016, and many of them have been like family seeing them day in, day out. I have learnt a great deal from all the children I have taught, and they have helped me as a teacher and person, for that I am very grateful! I know they will go on to be great at secondary school and hope the achieve to the best of their abilities.
6SK’s Parents’ Tea/Coffee afternoon was on Tuesday. It was great to catch up with you all as well as reflect on a busy year… and of course eat cake and biscuits!
On Wednesday the children performed their production: Snow White (The Roald Dahl Version) to the school, followed by parents at their graduation service at 18:00. I was proud of the children for how well they did with their production, it was really was superb. Thanks to Miss Murphy for all of the hard work in putting this together (some of it was way beyond me).
Yesterday, we visited The Forbidden Corner. This was the first time I had been to the center, and I can honestly say that it is an incredible place, with many hidden caves, mazes in woods and cool things to find along the way. I highly recommend visiting the place if you are able to get there… Also, the ice cream parlor close by is well-worth stopping at too!
Finally, today we had the Year 6 Leavers Service where we sang songs and reflected with the rest of the school through a collective worship. The children received books that will help with the transition to secondary school. We walked back to school where some pupils challenged the teachers to a football match. The teacher’s competitive side really showed – I think the children were quite shocked about how passionate the school’s teachers are about sport (maybe my class weren’t so shocked)!
I’d like to say a big thank you to all of the parents for making my time job easier and more enjoyable by being very cooperative, understanding, kind and generous; thank you for the unbelievable amount of presents you all sent in – I really am lucky and really appreciate the thought.
Have a great summer, stay safe, good luck in the transition to Year 7, and remember that all of the teachers love to hear from past students and are always here should you need anything at all.
