Letter to Year 6

                                                                                                                                                                                     

Dear Year 6 2016

You have had quite a final year here with us at Goostrey and before you leave Year 6, we want you to know that we are very proud of the pupils – young adults – you have become.  It is our job at Goostrey to educate you and prepare you for life as you grow up, and to ensure that you have the necessary skills to do well – applying your knowledge and understanding of the world around you when you get to High School and even beyond this time.

There have been so many different and varied activities, events and challenges which you have been a part of this year and we asked you to think of some of these whilst we were enjoying Kingswood.  Listed on the reverse of this letter are your choices and your thoughts in your own words.  Had you been given more time, the list could have been even longer.

As the adults who teach you, we are proud with the way you have tackled the challenges of Year 6 and it’s not been easy – you have absorbed the learning opportunities which have been presented to you – and these have been challenging to say the least!  Not only that, but you have been a part of the new assessment system and again, this has brought new challenges.  However, the results you take home with you today are really something to be extremely proud of.  You have literally “worked your socks off” and everyone involved with you is super pleased with what you have all achieved.

You should be really chuffed with whatever you find in your envelope because you gave everything your best, but that only reflects your English, maths and science.  You should also be celebrating the enjoyment you gain from your PE lessons, the creative art you have produced, the awe at the science projects you’ve worked on, the French you are able to speak, the drama you are producing with    Superstan, and more of the curriculum too.  Beyond that, the way you represent the school on visits, how you support each other with sporting events and tournaments and the way you conduct yourselves both with each other, and with visitors to the school.  This was apparent at your  residential, with so many positive comments from the instructors leading your activities, and the way your behaviour stood out as exemplary.

Most of all, is your friendships – you have been super with each other and have worked well in the classroom, during lessons, at playtimes and beyond.  You treat each other – every member of the class – as individuals, accepting that we all have different thoughts, opinions and differences and when it’s not always been easy, you’ve supported each other with an understanding and empathy which belies your age.  Simply put – you are a unique class.

In between all of this, you’ve also learned such a lot in your curriculum subjects too and now we turn to your maths, English and science because today is………….RESULTS DAY!  Back in May, when you sat your national assessments, you were asked to simply “do your best” – and you all did just that.  You are now taking home your SATs results.  Today, these are extremely important and you should all be extraordinarily proud and pleased with you hard work and effort.  Everyone in school is certainly very proud of your attainment.

As you now prepare to finish your time in Year 6 and say “Goodbye” to Goostrey, take everything you have learned from the curriculum and your time here.  This is what makes you all the happy, healthy and well-rounded young adults which you have all become.  Year 6 – Enjoy your last few weeks with us – it’s been a real pleasure to have taught you this year.

From – The Year 6 Team and everyone at Goostrey Community Primary School

 

Goostrey  Community Primary School is situated in the centre of a thriving village at the heart of rural Cheshire. The size of our school means we can create the individual, caring environment associated with a village school whilst being large enough to offer a full programme of curriculum and extra-curriculum activities. You are very welcome to come and look round our school.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Outstanding school!

This is an outstanding school. Excellent leadership ensures that pupils achieve extremely well, attain exceptionally high standards and develop into very positive and concerned young citizens. A comment that aptly sums up parents' views is, 'Goostrey School is a superb place for children to learn in an extremely happy atmosphere.' (OFSTED report 2007).

School Data Dashboard is a useful tool to measure school performance. However, it should be used in conjunction with other comparative data and reports to give a whole school view.
