This Final half term for year 6 has been one we'll never forget! After all the children working so hard this year, we had plenty of ways to help them celebrate how well they'd done.
We started off with some transition workshops, which helped prepare the children for their journey through life after Rockmount. They really enjoyed the financial workshop, where they earned 'money' by doing different activities and learned the importance of saving and spotting a good deal. On a more serious note, the children also attended a Choices and Consequences workshop, where they learnt the impact their choices can have now that they will soon be entering their teens.
The children had also been spending a lot of time rehearsing for their school play 'OLIVIA!', which culminated in three excellent performances by all the children involved to other year groups in the school and parents and carers.
The children with some teachers and parents then went on their long awaited PGL trip to the Isle of Wight. It was such an excellent trip, where the children were able to challenge themselves completing the many different activities they did and spending some real quality with their friends day and night. Definitely a trip the children will never forget.
To end the term with a bang, we also went to Adventure Island Theme Park, where again the children had such an enjoyable day, despite the wet weather. We realised that we have some real daredevils in Jade and Diamond class. And then finally the children had their Leavers' Assembly, a barbecue and disco to bid farewell to Rockmount.
As the year 6 team, we'd like to first thank all the people who helped make this year a success, specifically the RFC and Friends and Family of all the children. Good luck to all the children and come back and see us when you have the chance to let us know how you're doing. We'll miss you.
