Using the story below, which focuses on saying ‘goodbye’
“But why, Miss Day? Why are you leaving us?” asked lots of the children in year5. Miss Day had just told them that she was going to be married in the summer holidays and would be going with her husband to live in Kenya in Africa. First, they had been stunned into silence, and then Miss Day was flooded with a barrage of questions.“Who will teach us? What about the football team next year? Will you come back to us? Is Africa hot? Will you be there forever? Are you going to teach children? Can we still go on our school trip? You are the best teacher we’ve ever had. We like you and we want you to stay in our school.”
Miss Day told the children about how she and her husband-to-be wanted to spend the first two years of their life together in Kenya teaching children there. Year 5 made a card for Miss Day for her wedding to say “Goodbye and Good Luck” to her. They held a collection and bought some books for her to take to her new school. Now they are year 6, but they still keep in touch. They email Mrs Jordan, as she is now, and she skypes them from Kenya. She told them that when she uses the books that they gave her, she always thinks of them. However, there’s no one to take the football team, though they still play in the school playground. Year 6 pupils miss their special friend-teacher. They have photographs of her with the team and with the class.
Explore everyone having to deal with loss and change in their lives. You may move to a new house, class, or new school. Maybe an older brother or sister leaves home to go to university or get married. There are often goodbyes. Losses will always involve a change in life. Change can mean growth and development, as when people move to another school, make new friends and learn different subjects.
Answer these questions in your Home Learning Book
Ade is just an ordinary boy with an ordinary life. He loves living at the top of a tower block and he loves his life, but one day a building falls randomly near his home, an incredibly stable building. Luckily no one is hurt, but the buildings keep falling with no reason whatsoever. What does this tower block look like?
I hope that you are all safe and healthy. I miss all of you. School is important but so is your health. Take care of yourself and each other (from a safe distance of course). No matter what happens this year, be delighted of your achievements, your resilience, and your ability to adapt to extreme circumstances. I am proud of each one of you.
