As the end of the year approaches we would like to share our plans for our Year 6 leavers celebrations. Whilst it is not the plans we all hoped for, we do hope it gives everybody the opportunity to say goodbye and share many primary school memories.
We have provisionally planned this for Wednesday the 15th July at 1:30pm. However, this is weather permitting due to it being an outdoor event.
Whilst there will be some seats available if needed, we thought it would be a nice idea to invite families to bring a picnic blanket along with some afternoon treats. We have arranged for an ice-cream van to visit us during the event and our Year 6 children will be treated to an ice-cream. Ice-creams will be available to buy for other family members should you wish to.
We would like the children to be able to take part in traditional shirt signing and will therefore have tables set up where they will leave their shirts. Please ensure you bring a shirt on the day if your child wishes to participate in the shirt signing. There will be tables designated for each class which will be supervised by the class teacher. Shirts will be labelled with the child’s name so others can see whose shirt they are signing. Children will collect a pen on arrival and this will be disposed of once they have finished signing shirts. Hand sanitizer will be available at each table with children being invited a few at a time to sign the shirts whilst following a one way system.
Children will also have the opportunity to take socially distanced photographs with their friends as well as a small presentation ceremony.
As part of the preparations for the event, we would like to ask for your support by sharing any photos of your child from their first days at primary school through to Year 6. Please can any photos be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 6th July at 4pm. Please could you also email any short videos of your child marching to the song called ‘Amarillo’. We hope to share these videos by email for you and your child to treasure forever! Please email me by Monday 6th July should you not wish for photographs of your child to be included in the celebration and shared with others.
Finally, if any parents would like to send a video wishing their child good luck for next year, please email me too!
We look forward to seeing you at the event and if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact me.
Regards, Miss Blackham
