Well we have made it to the end of another academic year-and what an unusual one it has been. Who would have thought that key vocabulary such as ‘social distancing’, bubbles’ and ‘hand sanitiser’ would feature in the curriculum?

On Wednesday and Thursday, we said our goodbyes to year 6. Although we couldn’t all be together in the same place at the same time we did have an opportunity to catch up with the whole year group as we shared the films they had made about their favourite memories of their time at Worsley Bridge. The highlight of the services were the lock down films the children had made-they certainly captured the children’s wonderful personalities and the unusual situation we find ourselves in!

Before the children left, Mr Gwilliam and the year 6 teachers held a mini sports day for the children. It was a glorious day and the children really enjoyed the variety of activities, which included the javelin throw, golf putt challenge and bowls! After all of the scores were carefully counted, we ended up with four winners: Bailey, Ava, Ola and Athalia; each receiving a ‘Team Bromley’ t-shirt! Well done!

Please take a few minutes to visit our website so you can watch our final celebration assembly video for this year. Again, we had a huge amount to celebrate from fantastic home learning to children working exceptionally hard in their bubble groups. Art even received a special award from Clare, our temporary cook, as she was really impressed at how he has learnt to try new foods.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in September and will be working hard to ensure plans are in place for a smooth transition back to school. We will be sending out detailed information nearer the start of term explaining the safety measures that we will have in operation. It is highly likely that we will need to stagger the start and the end of the day to ensure that the pathways and entrances in and out of school do not become too congested. Children will still receive a full day of school, it will just start a little earlier or finish a little later. On their return children will operate in class bubbles and sometimes in year group bubbles e.g. for lunch and break. We will do our best to keep disruptions to an absolute minimum and try our hardest to keep communication open and clear.

I am sure you will join me in thanking all the staff for their hard work, consistent care and positive attitudes throughout this time. I would also like to thank you all again for your continued support and positive comments over the past few months. You have really helped to lift our spirits.

I sincerely wish you all an enjoyable holiday. We know some of you might be daunted by the thought of more time at home but please remember we are here if you need us. Should you need to, email the admin address and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.
