I’m not sure where the time has gone, but today marks the day Miss A left Year 4 and also first school ready for her adventures to start in Middle School in September.
I remember her first day at school so well, standing outside the classroom and she was so eager to go in. That thankfully never changed during her five years there and she has loved nearly every minute of it. It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago I was blogging about the end of year three, or the fact that Miss A had just gotten her ears pierced when she turned eight, and now she has had her ninth birthday and is looking so grown up compared to when she started school aged 4.
Year four has seen Miss A grow so much in confidence. She has been on her first school residential which she enjoyed a lot despite missing us being away from home for two nights (we missed her too!). She was part of the choir club at school which led to her being in the choir during the school performance recently, and also was able to represent the school during a gymnastics competition last Autumn.
Today we had a leaver’s service for all the year four children, and she made me so proud as she did ballet to another child singing a song that another child was playing on the piano. Such amazing talents from the children, they all portrayed a special skill.
Miss A would like to stay at first school forever and she was a little tearful as she left school today, but I think deep down she knows there are great adventures ahead.
The end of an era!
