St. Sebastian's R. C. Primary School


Year 6

Shiver mi timbers mi my hearty crew! How are you all doing? Who would have thought it, Jim Hawkins was marooned on an Island, Scrooge was visited by ghosts, Dorothy journeyed to Oz and we………. are restricted to our homes! I think our stories are by far the safest.


I miss you all dearly and hope that you are all safe and well.  In these situations it’s important to see them as a challenge and as an opportunity. It’s a time to learn more about ourselves; set new challenges and be creative.  Use your time to write plays and perform them, create a new game, write poetry about your daily routine, learn how to bake or cook, learn how to use the washing machine, take time to meditate and pray.

Top tips:

  • Don’t waste the opportunity of a new day.
  • See and do everything with a smile on your face.
  • Exercise daily (join Jo online at 9am).
  • Learn something new everyday.
  • Help those at home.
  • Spend time with loved ones and pray for the vulnerable.
  • Laugh everyday.
  • Teach your family how to do our wake up and shake up.

Looking after yourself will ensure you don’t end up like Scrooge, more like Bob Cratchit who sees the best in every given situation.

Take care, God bless each and every one of you!

Dear Year 6

I hope you are all okay and working your way through your home-packs and online work. To say I'm missing you would be an understatement. I think about you all each and every day.  Make sure you're being good for your parents and keep them smiling. Keep saying a quiet prayer that we will soon be back together. You must be missing my funny jokes by now.

Dear Year Six,


Just a quick note to say how much I have enjoyed working and spending time with you all.


Each and everyone of you are unique (remember that !) and have contributed to the class, including  the staff that have worked with you, in a positive way.  Your individuality shone through ( like a rainbow) and made the day brighter.  


The younger children looked up to you because you are mature young adults taking your role as a Year 6 pupil responsibly. I have come to know a lot about each and everyone of you - it's all good.  


I particularly thought it  was amazing how well you adapted to working with different members of staff.  This shows flexibility and indeed it will keep you in good stead as you prepare for your future life. 


Miss Donoghue said we will all get together at some point, for which I am very grateful and look forward to.  


I have no doubt in my mind that  with the maturity and resilience you have shown - you will get through this- we will get through this!


Most importantly, keep safe and keep on task  with your studies.


I truly cannot wait to see you again.


Stay safe,


Miss Coffey
