The end of Primary for Mr Pick

By | July 23, 2014

It’s your last day in primary school, Mr Pick, I hope you’re enjoying it.

You’ve taken a spare shirt in your bag in preparation for the one you’re wearing being written on and you’ve written your cards to your teachers, choosing a funny meerkat design.

You are so ready for the challenges of secondary school, you’ve been ready academically for a while and in just over six weeks, we’ll be waving you off (only if you want us to) as you head off on your school bus to secondary school.

Where have the last six years gone? You painted this self portrait in your first week in reception class and it’s remained where we stuck it with bluetack when you brought it home. I want it to always stay there.


You went into reception class with the same enthusiasm you still have now, eager to learn, absorbing facts like a sponge, always wanting to find out more.

Writing your name has progressed to writing match reports and your statistics of football games, always writing. Always reading. Always thinking ahead.

The latter is what makes you so good at football, you anticipate and get into position, that and your powerful left foot, a fantastic team player.

You have stacks of medals and trophies in your room, we used to walk past a house with trophies along one window sill and you’d say to me “I want to have a window sill like that one day” and you have.


You have a wonderful sense of humour too and sometimes giggle so much you get hiccups, which then make you giggle more. I love that we can all laugh together at Mrs Bucket, Harry Hill or The Goodies. I’m looking forward to watching Drop Dead Fred with you in the holidays.

Your school reports have always been fantastic and say that you’re a pleasure to teach, don’t ever lose that enthusiasm, that quest to learn, to find out more.

Hopefully by my writing this now means that I won’t get a bit embarrassingly “soppy” when I meet you at school later. Sunglasses will definitely be on.

We’ll go and have a frescato, you, me and Dad before we collect your sister. She’s miffed you finish earlier than her, you were secretly pleased about that, Mr Pick.

We’re so proud of you x
