Fun end to primary education
YEAR 6 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 the variable weather as they took part in activities ranging from zip wires and archery to treasure hunts and trampolining as an end-ofschool bonding activity.
“Leaving primary and getting ready for secondary school is a very significant event for the children so we really like to make it memorable for all of them. It was wonderful to see them respond so positively,” said assistant headteacher Rose Peacock, one of the organisers.
“They showed great teamwork and camaraderie, and it was great to spend time with them outside the usual classroom environment. The camp instructors were full of praise for them and they acted as great ambassadors for the school.”
The pupils are saying goodbye to Springfield, a member of the GLF Schools multi-academy trust, as they prepare to move on to secondary education.
“These trips gave all the children a chance to get out and try character-building activities, while having huge fun with their friends,” Miss Peacock added.
“A lot of people put in a huge amount of hard work but knowing we’ve helped create so many happy memories for the children makes it all worthwhile.”
Some of the Springfield Primary pupils enjoyed a trip to Devon earlier this month.
