A week of mixed emotions for us all, we have so much to celebrate but at the same time we have to say good bye to the year six as they leave us to move on to High school. Elaine our Vicar summed it up all very nicely when she said there really isn't any endings only new beginnings.

 

So what did we get up to in our very last week? Where to begin? On Monday we all moved around to spend some time with our new teachers for next year. This was an opportunity to set up our books and find out some of the things that each class has planned for the forthcoming term.The year six's spent time working with Miss Walker writing and practising for their leavers assembly.

Wednesday the year fives went off to be buddies for the new children who are to start reception in September. They all met up in Delamere Forest dressed as their favourite story book character to have a teddy bears picnic. Whilst the year five's were busy building dens in the forest the year six pupils had their end of year six celebration trip.

This year the year six's were each set the challenge of planning , costing and risk assessing the venue or activity that they would like to visit for their final trip. After lengthy deliberation by Mr Docking it was decided that the trip would be to Alton Towers. As a special treat it was decided that the school would also pay for the children to have fast pass tickets so they could avoid the lengthy queues.What a day it was! Amazingly the sun shone and we tackled some of the scariest rides , a special well done to both Megan and Caitlin who were obviously terrified but shown amazing courage and took their seats alongside every one else and experienced the intense terror of Nemesis , Air and Nemesis Sub Terra to name but a few. It was a great day and we all had a fantastic but exhausting day.

Thursday as the year six children practised one last time the year five braved some torrential rain to take part in The Big Cook Off. Working alongside the children of Blakemere we built much needed shelters and fires and cooked a surprising tasty sausage casserole.We all dried off in time to watch the leavers assembly for our year 6. This is an opportunity for the parents to listen as the children reflect on their memories of the time they have spent in Delamere. The children spoke emotionally and eloquently and sang beautifully .

We all wish the year six children Bobbie, Caitlin, Megan, Aaron, Brandon, Chris and Matthew best of luck in their new schools.
