Here is a new video tour of Early Years. Thanks to them for all of their help! We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it. 😊 If you have friends that are considering us as a school for their child next year, please could you share it.
Earlier this week we said a final farewell to our Year 6 Leavers. The children were given an amazing Bracken Leas send off with our Farewell Festival. The current situation meant that we were unable to go ahead with the usual Year 6 Prom. However, due to some clever thinking, enthusiasm and a little help from technology, we were able to give them a send off that they truly deserved.
The children’s final day consisted of the traditional Leavers Assembly. Children remained in their bubbles, connected by Zoom and were hosted by Mrs Harwood and the Year 6 teachers. Shirt signing took place, adjusted to follow current guidance, and leavers hoodies and memory books were distributed to everyone.
This event was followed by a Farewell Festival on the field where the children were treated to pizza, ice-cream and cake. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of awards, singing, dancing and fun before parents were invited to collect them for the last time.
Award Winners & Nominees
Over the course of the afternoon we celebrated the achievements of our Year 6 children with awards which varied from ‘Lockdown Legend’ to Sports, Reading and Musical achievement Awards. Everyone was included in our award ceremony, their achievements reflecting the journey they have been on at Bracken Leas.
Below you can see all of the children nominated for each award as well as the winners of the awards.
