New adventure as pupils say farewell to Springfield
YEAR Six pupils preparing to leave Springfield Primary School in Sunbury began their send-off in style with activity trips to Devon and around the Sunbury area.
The youngsters made light of some unseasonable wintry weather as they took part in activities ranging from zip wires and archery to treasure hunts and trampolining as a special end-of-school bonding activity.
“Leaving primary and getting ready for secondary school is a very significant event for the children so we like to make it memorable for all of them, and it was wonderful to see them respond so positively,” said Year Six teacher and Springfield assistant head Rose Peacock.
“They showed great teamwork and camaraderie, and it was great to spend time with them outside the usual classroom environment.
“The instructors were full of praise for them. They were great ambassadors for the school. These trips give the children a chance to get out and try character-building activities, while also having huge fun with their friends.
“A lot of people put in a huge amount of hard work for these trips to happen, but knowing we’ve helped create so many happy memories for the children makes it all worthwhile.”
