Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Move up day

It is that point in the year already where we have our whole school move up day!


Many of our wonderful Year 6s were off at their secondary schools, taking that very big next step. Our staff will be thinking of them all day, wishing them the best of luck. A few of our Year 6s weren't at their secondary schools today so had some great topic based activities to work on, alongside Miss Grove and Mrs James. 


As the rest of the school came in this morning, excitement filled the air! Every class was busy with enthusiastic conversations about all that next year has to offer. Of course, the nerves were there too but that is only natural with any big change. We know our children are going to thrive with the opportunity to develop new friendships and explore their new year group.


Our staff certainly experienced the mixture of excitement and nerves this morning, particularly as we are having a bit of a move round! Our staff have stayed in the same year groups for a couple of years now and we felt it was time to switch things up. This afternoon, all children will receive a letter with their new class teacher and a full list of the new staff structure. We are very much looking forward to next academic year.


The move up day theme was 'Incredible You', a book selected by the English Team. All classes listened to the story first thing and then enjoyed the rest of the day getting involved in activities linked to the text. The story really encourages being your authentic self, in whatever way suits you - something that really fits our Great Binfields ethos. There were smiling faces, laughter, creativity and huge amounts of individuality on display today throughout the whole school and we know our children made a great first impression on their new year group team.
