Leaving primary school is a very sad thing to go through but it’s also a time to be excited to have a fresh start. We have to leave our friends but make new ones at the same time and to show our new teachers a good impression of what we can do and how we do it. We are going to a new school but memories will still stay in our minds forever.


Moving to secondary school

Worries and excitement

The time has come for me to move to Secondary School, despite being extremely nervous, the excitement covers all of my worries and I am free to look on the bright side of things. I am going to a different school to everyone else so I may never see them again, at least not like I do now. I’m not so worried about losing my friends even though I would like to keep in touch with a few of them but I was born to make new friends.

Leaving primary

There has always been a river I couldn’t cross, at least by myself but I’ve had all the help I’ve needed some people said it’s too hard but no one said it would be easy. We all achieved so much at Thorp that they will not be able to forget us. If we haven’t learnt anything else we’ve learnt that we should never give up no matter how big the river we have to cross may be.


Moving to secondary school

I am very nervous about moving to secondary school; also I am very excited at the same time! I am excited about meeting new friends and getting to move classroom after every lesson. The things that I’m worried about is getting lost also it is being bullied.

I will really miss primary school because in secondary the rules are a lot stricter and the work is a lot harder as well as that I will miss all my friends playing around in the playground!

Leaving Thorp

I am really looking forward to secondary school. Of course I will miss being in a class with all my friends but I will make new ones. My biggest fear is getting bullied and getting lost but I’m sure that I will be fine. I will hopefully make some new friends and luckily I already have one in my form. My teacher seems friendly too!

Leaving primary school is a very hard thing to do. Yes, there will be tears but it’s normal. I am nervous but excited about moving up to secondary but I know I’ll be fine. I’ll miss my friends that are going to separate schools than me but I know one day we’d cross paths again and meet up. To anybody that’s reading this, don’t get nervous about leaving primary up to secondary because you’ll be absolutely fine.

End of year 6

The past eight years at thorp have flown so fast. It has been one of the best journeys that each and every one of us has enjoyed, from day one to right now. Every teacher that we have ever had has made our time at Thorp worth every second. So that is why it is so difficult to say goodbye but most importantly a massive thank you! Leaving our friends is especially hard as some of us are going to different schools, and we are all wishing everybody good luck for their new secondary schools and we all hope for them to make many new friends. So for one last time thank you and goodbye to the one and only Thorp Primary School.



In science, year 6 have been learning about pulleys. We split into groups of 3 and made our own pulleys. I worked with Callum and Kyle. The boys and I made our own pulleys with special materials. We did a test and we were surprised it worked.



Year 6 have had a busy week this week practicing our fractions for SATS. We have also been learning about Royton in the past. We are all very excited to go to Robinwood next week but we are also very sad. Mrs Hall our amazing teaching assistant is unfortunately leaving Thorp. We will all miss her but we all wish her good luck.
