Year 6 Bid a Fond Farewell to Hawford with Moving Assembly

This morning there was a sombre mood in The Barn as an emotional Year 6 bid a fond farewell to King’s Hawford with their Leavers Assembly. Using a combination of old photos, videos and spoken word Year 6 took the assembled school on a whistlestop tour of their King’s Hawford journey.

From cutesy pictures of themselves as shy Kindergarten’s, through to curious Reception children and onwards to confident and happy Year 6 pupils, it was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. There were tears and laughter in The Barn as Year 6 recounted the highs and highs of their time at King’s Hawford. From nativities to school productions and themed days to formal concerts, welly wanging to pancake races and Arts Week to Charities Day and everything in between. It was clear that King’s Hawford is an extremely special place and one in which our Year 6 pupils have grown and thrived over the years.

Year 6 pupils shared with the younger year groups their top tips for making their time at King’s Hawford the best possible…

During the assembly Mrs Phillips awarded Hawford Activity badge certificates to all those Year 6 pupils who have earnt badges during their time at King’s Hawford. Well done to Anya and Florence B who both managed to collected all of their King’s Hawford Activity badges. Special mention must go to their mum’s for their excellent sewing skills!

We had a special visitor in assembly today, representing the Brain Trust, Steph joined us to accept a donation of money raised through the recent Score for Essa event. As well as accepting the cheque Steph spent time talking to the school about how the money would be used and the brilliant work that the Brain Trust do.
