Goodbye Primary School

It is nearly time for Year 6 at Badock’s Wood E-ACT Academy to say goodbye to Primary School. We wanted to tell you about some of our highlights and some of the things that we are looking forward to. Some of us are feeling nervousited (nervous/excited) but we are ready.

These are some of our highlights.

A few years ago we worked with year 4, 5 and 6 in a play called The Snow Queen and in a production of Jack and the Beanstalk. We had fun working together and put on an amazing play. More recently we visited the SS Great Britain and learned all about Brunel.

We have shared a picnic at the Greenway Centre and hosted a Victorian Christmas Market, the best bit was that we used the money we made at the market to buy supplies for our end of year AirHop Trip.

Some things we will never forget, at camp last year we did amazing activities like body boarding and team building. We made bread out of stinging nettles and elderflower and baked it on the fire, it was delicious. Before we went to bed we had hot chocolate.

We have had amazing and friendly teachers while we have been at Badock’s Wood, we want to say thank you to them and we will miss them with half of our heart (the other half is for chocolate).

There are many things to be looking forward to in secondary school and a few things that you might not be looking forward to, here are some of ours:

“I can’t wait to go to Bristol Free School because I want to do art “ Corey
“I am not looking forward to dissections but I am looking forward to doing textiles “ Lily May
“I am looking forward to dissections, because at the moment I don’t know anything about it “ Maya
“I am looking forward to science. Top tip – don’t put your hands in the Bunsen burner flame!” Thomas

We want to tell you some of our tips so you are ready for secondary school. Here are our top five tips:
– Always have your timetable with you so you know where you’re supposed to be.
– Don’t be afraid to ask if you are lost.
– Don’t expect to know everything on your first day.
– Behave yourself and be patient.
– Don’t worry if your old friends aren’t with you, you will make new ones.

If you are going to secondary school we hope you enjoy it.
