Year 6 Leavers’ Poem 2020
What a year it has been for you,
My fantastic Year 6 crew.
We had plans and intentions.
Lots of things to do.
From learning about algebra, ratio, SPaG,
To using the subjunctive mood – we had that in the bag!
Yet, as you often find in life,
We were all put to the test…
Just not the normal SATs-y kind,
A strange, abnormal quest.
Schools were sent to lockdown
And were sadly closed for most.
Of all our priorities,
Your safety was utmost.
Your world was sent askew
And your lives changed overnight.
Yet, acting for the greater good,
You did what’s just and right.
It’s been so hard – we all know that.
I’m so proud of what you’ve shown
When facing such adversity
Unlike you’ve ever known.
We are in a time in history
That will be on the shelves:
A tale to tell your grandchildren
that included all of ourselves.
A spell when you were in Year 6
And had to leave your friends
To keep all of your loved ones safe
And bring this to an end.
They’ll look at you like heroes-
The sort I know you are:
You’re warriors; you’re brave,
You’re bright and dazzling stars.
And, though we’ve had to part now,
In unexpected ways,
We still have all the memories of countless fun school days.
Remember cheers on Sports Days
And trips to near and far.
Remember celebration assemblies
And learning to build a car.
Remember all the playtimes
And running on the grass.
But most of all remember
How you are valued in this class.
As I look back in the future,
I’ll think of you all and smile;
The class who showed resilience
And went the extra mile.
So, though it’s time to say goodbye,
Just know it’s not the end.
We’ll live on in your memories
As special Year 6 friends.
