Year 6 Goodbyes and Good lucks!

Year 6 Leavers Video


One of my favourite Year 6 leavers traditions is changing the lyrics to a song for the rest of the school to sing to you, although it's not easy having children rehearse in the hall without being caught! 


This year was a little different because we couldn't get together. Instead, your friends from across the school have been busy recording a music for you, followed by some messages from staff. 


Tissues at the ready!

For our Year 6 leavers 2020



We have been together for many years, 

Sharing our hopes, dreams and fears.


But in March, we were sent home to stay, 

Learning online was our new school day. 


We made rainbow pictures and went out to cheer, 

The key workers protecting those we hold dear.


What should have been a time for celebration,

Became a time of worry and isolation. 


But what we have learnt in a time like this, 

Is what's truly important and the friends we miss. 


It has not been the final year we had hoped, 

 But we're amazed at your strength and how well you've coped. 


Hold on to the memories that we have shared, 

Remembering friends and those who cared. 


The class of 2020 will hold a place in our heart, 

For the courage you've shown from the very start. 


You have carried on regardless during this period of change, 

And continued on when things were strange.


You're moving on to somewhere new, 

Filled with the confidence you need to see you through. 


From all at Dr Walker's, we wish you the best, 

Smile and hard work will be your key to success.
