Year 6 Leavers Poem 2021
What a year it’s been for you, my lovely, little crew!
We had plans and intentions and a lot of things to do.
From learning about areas like algebra and SPaG,
to using the subjunctive mood – we had that in the bag!
Yet, as you’ll often find in life, we were put to the test…
but not the normal SATs-y kind – a weird, abnormal quest.
For back in 2020, when the lockdowns first begun,
we never thought they’d still be here in 2021.
Your world was twisted sideways; your life changed overnight.
Yet, acting for the greater good, you did what’s just and right.
It’s been so hard – I know that.
I’m proud of what you’ve shown,
when facing such adversity unlike we’ve ever known.
We’re in a time in history that will be on the shelves:
a tale to tell our grandchildren that’s greater than ourselves.
A spell when you were children and you had to leave your friends,
to keep all of your loved ones safe and bring this to an end.
They’ll look at you like heroes – the sort I know you are:
you’re warriors; you’re brave, young knights; you’re bright and dazzling stars.
And, though we’ve had to part now, in a ‘social distance’ haze,
we still have all the memories of countless fun school days.
Remember cheers on Sports Days and trips to near and far.
Remember class assemblies and being a Nativity star.
Remember all our playtimes and running on the grass.
But, most of all, remember how you’re valued in this class.
As I look back in future, I’ll think of you and smile;
the kids who showed resilience and went the extra mile.
So, though it’s time to say goodbye, just know it’s not the end.
We’ll live on in your memories as special year six friends.
