End of year assembly was a special time once again. Congratulations to Oaks, who won the House Cup and to James, Noah, Joshua and Amelia, who received the Headteacher's Award and to Emma for her 100% attendance. And many thanks to Felicity, Pearl, Emma, Paris, Chloe and Logan for entertaining us with their piano recitals. It was also a sad day at Gresham Village today, as we said a fond farewell to Ben, Jessica, Kallan, Chloe, Lizzy, Kaelan, Caitlin, Logan and Amelia. Their words in assembly were very poignant and we wish them all the very best in their new schools.

Moving on can be very tough. I know that, because before Gresham, I went to a bigger school in Hertfordshire. At the time I was very happy there and I was planning on moving to Middle School. Then out of the blue, 'we're moving to Norfolk'. I was heartbroken and didn't know what to expect. But now I don't regret it.

I love being here- I've met so many nice people and made many memories that I will never forget. I learnt so much too. Now it is time for me to move to High School and I will have an amazing time there, but I will never forget this school and how amazing it is.
There are many things at GVS that we have to move on from, most of them we loved and some that we are happy to leave behind, but all of them I will remember, especially the time when I was in Mrs Newstead's class.
We did this thing called 'The Mouse House'. Basically it was a little hole in between two sets of drawers. We used to draw mini pictures to stick on the walls and purposefully break pencil leads for them to use as pencils. Sometimes when we got back into our classroom in the morning, we would see that it wasn't there any more. We all blamed Mrs Hayman. This is my most memorable moment at school and I will never forget it.
In life you have to move on a lot. Sometimes it is easier than others: say if you dropped a penny on the floor, it wouldn't really matter and you would just carry on with your life; but now say if, for example, someone you had known for years died. That is harder to move on from. It makes going from primary school to high school seem like nothing.
Then there are times when you just have to move on. Like now. we can't stay at primary school forever and we have to move on some day. So why not today? It's as good as any other day. So let's have strong upper lip, remember the good times and memories that we've made and move on to the next chapter of our lives. Let's get ready to make new memories!
