Our final week as Year 6

So here we are…. your final week at Baschurch Primary School. We are so sorry you haven’t had the same final privileges, experiences or trips but you have made history! Not only do you have the coolest Leaver’s Jumper year (2020), you have been the heroes and the history makers that will always be remembered. We are so excited to take part in our Virtual Leaver’s Service on Wednesday – its going to be an emotional one!

 

This week you are going to be hearing lots of stories, sharing memories and looking forwards to your next milestone – starting secondary school. Before we get there, we just wanted to take a minute and say a huge thank you! Thank you for being brave, for being strong and for being so mature when the world has changed for all of us and you have seen things you have been looking forward to for so long change, be postponed and cancelled. Every single one of you have been amazing, swallowing the disappointment, keeping your chins up and carrying on.

 

Thank you for all your hard work, commitment and effort to try and  continue your education ‘online’ for the past 4 months. Last September we made plans, set targets and aimed high – none of you disappointed us or did not fulfil the hopes and standards we set for you – you have soared!

 

We could not be more proud of a our Year 6 class and you will always be a special year group to us –  with so many good memories, giggles and achievements to treasure. So thank you for making this year one we will never forget as your teachers!

 

We have plenty to say about you as the week goes on and hope you enjoy this very special week and you feel celebrated and appreciated by the whole school as only a Year 6 class can or should!
