Fun end to pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

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.
