Year Six pupils preparing to leave Springfield Primary School in Sunbury began their send-off in style recently with activity trips to Devon and around the Sunbury area.
The youngsters made light of the variable weather as they got to take part in activities ranging from zip wires and archery to treasure hunts and trampolining as an end-of-school 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, and it was wonderful to see them respond so positively,” said Year Six teacher and Springfield assistant head Rose Peacock, one of the organisers of the activity programme.
“They showed great team-work 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 will soon be saying goodbye to Springfield, a member of the GLF Schools multi-academy trust, as they prepare for secondary education, and Miss Peacock said it was the perfect way to sign off.
“These trips gave all the children a chance to get out and try new character-building activities, whilst also having huge fun with their friends,” she added. “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.”
