Well the time is almost here – just one week to go and we have the long summer break ahead of us. It has been quite a chaotic week because we have had most of the Year 6 out for a day visiting their new schools and we have had all the new children in visiting us. It is hard to believe that when I first met the Year 6 they were as small as the new children that have been visiting us and I cannot believe 7 years have passed so quickly. It is true that you have to make the most of every moment of your children’s childhood because it is over in what seems like a moment.
All the other children met their new teachers this week and all appear very happy and excited for next year so that is good. Let us hope they feel as happy when they have to return to school in September after the long summer break. We are planning a themed ‘Arts’ Week’ for when they return to help make their first week back more enjoyable.
Next week will be primarily focused around the Year 6 because it is their last week. They are putting on a play for their parents on Thursday evening and this will be followed by their ‘Leavers’ Party’ which they are all really looking forward to. On Friday morning they have their ‘Leavers’ Assembly’ which can be quite an emotional occasion (especially for the parents). We will miss the children but we hope we have prepared them so they feel excited for the next stage of their education.
Have a great weekend. We have been promised some better weather but it is so unpredictable at the moment that you never know what to expect. I have a course on Monday morning which means I will not be on the gate on Monday morning so I will see you all again on Tuesday.
