6L A very fond farewell…

Dear 6L,

These last few months have been difficult for you and your families. You will have missed being at school with your friends. You have also missed the chance to enjoy the most exciting months of Year 6 – , school journey, the end of year show, picnic in the park, SAT’s (only joking πŸ˜› ) the boat cruise and countless other events which would traditionally mark and celebrate the end of your time at Holbeach. You will naturally have felt very disappointed to have lost out on the chance to enjoy all these events. We all share your sadness πŸ™

How did you react? Your response in these unprecedented times has been remarkable. You rose to the challenges of virtual learning, continuing to work at home. You stayed home for weeks on end, putting the safety of others ahead of your own wishes and plans. You played your part in helping to protect people in our community. Your sacrifices saved lives. That is an achievement you can always be proud of. πŸ™‚

While the last few months may have been difficult in many ways, I also hope that this time has allowed you to experience something very important about your school days. You have learned that your school is not just a building.

School is where we make friends, work together and discover our talents. School is where we recognise all that we have in common with each other while respecting all the things that make us unique. School is where we came together and we discovered, during these last four months, that we could still do that even when we were apart!

Although we weren’t able to gather to together in school for many, many weeks, we remained connected and united showing that there are things that no virus or lock down can ever take from you including the connection you share with your friends, your teachers and all the staff at Holbeach who have helped you on your way. Your connection to us will always remain. You will always be our Holbeach child. πŸ™‚

In September, you will begin a new and exciting chapter of your lives. I hope that you will be able to look back on your years at Holbeach and smile. Today, as you are say goodbye to your primary school years, I want to wish each and every one of you a future filled with happiness and love. My heart is bursting with pride. I have loved being your teacher. Take care and remember to be kind.

Lots and lots and lots of love , Miss Lynch πŸ™‚

Staying safe online

Task 1 – Think about your ‘digital footprint’. What do you do when you are online? Which websites do you visit? Which Apps do you use? Which gaming platforms do you log into? Who do you send messages to?

Draw an outline of a footprint like the one below in your book. Write all the ways you use the Internet inside your footprint. Ask a parent or friend to look at your footprint to check you have remembered to include everything you do online. πŸ™‚
