They thought they had done their final assembly a few weeks ago but this morning Year 6 took to the stage again to sing “There’s no place I’d rather be”, a song that seems to be echoing around Allerton CE Primary at the moment! Wearing denim and odd footwear (a fund raising project for a cancer charity) they looked like they wanted to be together.
The girls then did an amazing dance routine involving somersaults, headstands and other incredible manoeuvres.
Merrily we rolled into a steel pan demonstration from some of the boys, a resounding success!
Vanessa shared with us that life is all about caring and sharing, not being cool.
Emily then gave a fantastic solo dance which was very well received. This was followed by half the class sharing a dance with us to the song “Say what you want to say”.
We then saw a video showing our leavers over their time at our school. It’s amazing how much they have grown up and developed over the years and although the pictures may have embarrassed a few children they showed how much they have enjoyed their time here and the amazing opportunities they have had.
Mrs Hull, who has been at the school since it was formed 7 years ago, said her farewell to us by talking to us about one of her favourite things – chocolate! She is going to be hugely missed and we wish her well in her retirement eating her Curly Wurlys!
We also had an extremely special guest who had flown for 24 hours from Malawi to say farewell to Mrs Hull – Miss Cave!
Miss Linsley and Mrs Hull have both worked for Leeds City Council for 25 years and so they were presented with wonderful framed picture acknowledging their service.
When year 6 did gardening we had to plant lots of different apple trees and poppies. It was a lot of fun and effort but it was totally worth it, as it turned out amazing. We did it in the car park and made a little bit of a mess but cleaned it up straight after. Some of us spotted some disgusting slugs, worms, massive spiders, a frog and more. Everyone enjoyed it but was very tired after as we worked a lot and the sun was out which was no help.
