Year 6

Updated: Friday 17th July 2020

What a fantastic day we have all had! It was so lovely to have the majority of year 6 back together and those who could not attend were missed…BUT not forgotten. This final week has been filled with fun and laughter- just what the children deserved. I cannot thank you all enough for the time we have spent together, the gifts, cards and kind words. Thank you. I am very humbled and grateful. Mrs Mumford and Mrs Morgan wished to pass on their thanks too:

Thank you from Mrs Morgan

I’d like to say goodbye with this compilation of photos taken today. Enjoy!

Good morning year 6! I hope that you enjoy your leavers’ video as much as I enjoyed making it.

Well here we are at the end of our two year journey together and the end of your time at Canon Popham.  As we say our hellos again this week, we shall also be sharing our goodbyes.  However this is not the end, but the beginning of a new and exciting stage for you all…. and you are all going to be so amazing in all that you go on and do.

I have been thinking about the last two years and there are so many happy memories.  As a class, I have seen you all grow not only in height (lol), but in ability and confidence.  I am so proud of you all.  Two years ago we began our learning journey studying World War One and I saw straight away how fantastic you all were in your work: creative, thoughtful and caring.  You all embraced our topics on deforestation and palm oil use and plastic waste. You all made a difference trying to influence others and therefore make our world a better place.  (I have never had a class receive so many letters!) I loved our trip to Twycross Zoo. We all, including me, were shocked to hear how our planet would be affected if bees became extinct.   As a result you have left your mark on Canon Popham by building the ‘Bee B n B’. Carry on making your little bit of difference in our world. You are the future.

This last year I have seen you all work as hard as you could, pushing yourselves to be the best you could be. I know many of you were disappointed not to be able to show that in your SATS, but I also know that all that effort has not gone to waste. Your attitude to learning has set you up well for your next big step! Keep that up. I hope that you can all see the potential in yourselves. Always remember that you CAN DO IT! It may take a little time, but anything can be achieved if you don’t give in.

School isn’t all about the learning.  It’s also about friendships made and supporting one another. This year I have seen that too. It was one of my favourite times at PGL. The way you all embraced the challenges, encouraged each other and looked out for one another was so fantastic. Moving on to high school does not mean that these friendships have to end.  They can continue as new ones are forged.  Let me tell you that I am still close friends with my primary school friends and they were all in different forms to me.  Change can be scary, but it also brings exciting new opportunities.

So as we say goodbye this week, yes we may all feel sad, but that’s normal.  You know that you are welcome to come back and say hello. I can’t wait to hear how you have all settled in. So…all I now need to say is THANK YOU year 6 for making the last two years so enjoyable. Good luck!

In addition, the Spelling Frame website has a good area to continue developing their skills.


Children may well be using the internet more than usual at the moment so it is a good time to remind and emphasise how to keep safe online. CEOP have produced lots of great resources which parents/carers can access on their website:

In the event that your child wants to do more, there is an Additional Home Learning Resources page with other activities.  Not all will be suitable for Year 6.  Please note that this is only if pupils want more to do.

I hope all this helps.
