We are acutely aware that this is a highly challenging time for your children and we are aware that, for those Year 6 children in school today, this may be the last time that they see each other as a year group at Riverside Primary School. Whilst we hope that this isn't the case, we recognise that it could be.
I know that some children have brought in their shirts today to have them signed. I also know that some children have not. Therefore, to be inclusive to all the children who are here today, we have created a 'Year 6 Signature Book.' All children who have brought their shirts in can have their shirts and signature book signed and all children without their shirts can have their signature books signed. This means each child can take home a memento today.
Once the schools are directed to reopen, we will hold an end of year event for the Year 6 children to officially celebrate their time at Riverside. If we are open again before the close of the summer term, we will be able to do this then. If this is not possible, we will organise a reunion event. This will be something for the children to look forward to.
I will be in touch separately about the Year 6 Residential Trip to Bawdsey Manor.
