CBBC Programme

Exciting news, the programme that was being filmed in our school last term, ‘Goodbye Year Six’, is scheduled to start on Monday 3rd September at 4.30pm on the CBBC channel. All five programmes will be shown in that week at 4.30pm every day.

I must confess to having had a little sneak preview and it’s really good! I’ve also heard that Stacey from Eastenders (actress Lacey Turner) is doing the voice over… and that she is a big fan of Patronic.

All of the details can be found on the CBBC website.Β 

Charlotte who produced and directed the programme would love to know what you think of the programme, so leave your comments below and I will pass them on to her.

Looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday.

  1. I’m not happy about this! When I left year 6 in Heavers we didn’t do anything like this.

  7. I really enjoyed watching the programme, it was really good!!!!
    I really enjoyed Patrick and Giovannes beat-boxing part, they were really good!!! – cant wait to see the rest.

  8. Madison and I really enjoyed watching it, good to get the children’s perspective on their time at Heavers.

  9. I remember going to Heavers Farm in 2004. Good times! But the kids in this programme seem to have a lot more fun than we used to have! It was well hard back in the day. lol!

  10. Dear year six, I watched you with my next door neighbour. Did you have fun? It was good fun watching you in year six. I bet you will all have lots of fun and friends in year 7. My favourite so far is watching Patrick rapping and beat boxing. Well done to everyone who did everything right in the sats exam and who did very well. I wish I could see you all again. can’t wait until tomorrow

  11. Patrick (or Patronic) is really good!!! I just left year 6 and I will miss it sooo much. The people in the class seem friendly. I couldnt imagine 60 people in my year 6 class cos there was only 30. Oh, and I like the names Serrenur and Kelsey. If you’re out there, then I like your name. A lot. πŸ™‚

  12. I’ve been wathching it and I was cracking up laughing all of them were so funny especially Patrick.

  13. I really miss Ms Papas! she was soooo lovely!! I wish I could go back to school at Heavers Farm!! My little brother is starting at Heavers Farm next year and I can’t wait to see Ms Papas again! Plus I am loving the programme!!!

  14. I really love this programme! been watching it with my son. he was bullied serverly and was actually thinking of going to heavers but all the places were filled when we tried to apply. we are going to try again next year though. good job ms papas. you are obviously a brilliant educator! looking forward to the rest of the show!

  15. Hi just watched the show, it was really good, best part for me was when Patrick was beat boxing.
    Ezra yr 5.

  16. Thank you Zebedee,

    What a nice comment, although I couldn’t do it without brilliant staff and, of course, lovely children! We look forward to you and your son joining us in the not too distant future.

    Best wishes

  23. I just finished watching the series and it was amazing! I remember being in year six in my old primary school and it was so sad leaving! But I’m in my second year at secondary school now and loving it! Ps. That prom Looks great I wish my ps had it!

  24. Dear ms papas
    I’m really impressed I’m in year 10 an watched all the whole series it was funny and emotional I loved it! I felt as though I was with them in the last term of year 6.Anyone who is going to secondary school as long as the friendship is strong it will last for ever no matter where life takes you. I wish I had gone here most of the people I went to primary with don’t even remember my name

  25. Hello Becky,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely message. Your advice is very thoughtful and useful.

    Best wishes

    Ms Papas

  26. Hey Kelsey!! I miss you! Miss Papas can I come and visit the school next week? After school? Hope so!! LOL I found it really funny watching our prom! Me and my ‘date’! aww and Kelsey looked beautiful in her dress didn’t she! Her mum cried!

  27. I don’t go to Heavers Farm Primary, but I wish I did. Everyone on the program has given me an insight of what to expect in year 6 (as I have only just started the year group) and has really inspired me that even though not everyone is going to the same school, your are all positive :p

  28. THIS IS THE BEST PROGRAM!!! But I’m now so sad about leaving year 6 😦 we didn’t have a prom, we had sleep over, but a prom sounds gr8 too πŸ™‚

  29. I’m so sad that the series is over – I miss Heavers Farm soo soo soo much, this show really brought back memories. Secondary school is really fun, and I will be visiting Heavers Farm in a couple of weeks!! I can’t wait!!

  30. Miss Papas that is not me … This is the real Kelsey … The person that was saying all of those things wasnt me …

  31. Omg mrs Papas you are a very great teacher I went to a school called Whitchurch Junior school and I was so scared leaving that school this year now i am in year 7 I hope you do more series next year. By the way Cookie I hope u enjoyed you date it was so sweet seeing you take a picture with your date. Mrs Papas my school is in the west of london where is your school because I really want my brother to join this school but if it is too far then he cannot I hope it is near us. Serrenur I feel so sorry that u didnt go to the same school as your best mate katie, I think her name was. By the way Cookie you dont look stupid u actually look really nice. Mrs. Papas how did u ge the opportunity to be on this show and who chose this school to do it. Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this especially Mrs.Papas, Cookie, Serunner and Katie.

  32. Hello Kelsey,

    Oh, sorry I thought the earlier message was from you! Maybe it was Kelsey D. I hope you are doing well and enjoying your school.

    Hope we see you soon.

    Ms Papas

  33. Hello Sujiva,

    I am sorry to hear that you were scared when you left your last school. We are in South Norwood, which is in the South of London which may be a little too far for your brother to travel. We got the opportunity to do the show because the programme makers were originally looking for a school that held a school prom for the Year 6 pupils. They found our website after searching on the internet and asked if we would be part of a programme they were making.

    I hope that you enjoy your new school and thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely message.

    Ms Papas

  34. Hello Krysstina,

    Thank you for your kind message and I am glad that the programme has helped you to prepare for Year 6 and to feel positive about your move onto secondary school. I hope that you enjoy your Year 6 experience and that you have as much fun as our pupils do.

    Ms Papas

  35. I actually want to thank you for your time to reply to my comment. It is a real shame to hear that you are a little to far for my brother to come into your school once again thank you.

  36. Ms Papas, do you remember me? I left heavers farm in 2010 (I think!) ! My name is Sophie! I hope everything goes well for you in the next school year! I’d really like to come and visit, but I don’t live in that part of London anymore 😦
    I’d be so grateful if you reply!

  37. Madeline, I’m sad too! I’d love to see more of the children at heavers farm.

  38. Hello Sophie,

    Nice to hear from you. Where are you living now? I hope you are well and enjoying school. Let us know how you’re getting on.

    All the best

    Ms Papas

  39. The programme was fantastic, I watched it with my son who attends Heavers Farm and it reinforced what we already knew that Heavers Farm is a brilliant school with brilliant staff

  40. Thank you Christine,

    It is very nice of you to say. However, it’s lovely parents like you and lovely children like Caleb that make our school what it is.

    Best wishes

    Susan Papas

  41. Mrs Papas,
    Thank you for taking the time to reply! I live in North London, well, it’s not even really London anymore! Just on the very outskirts. My little twin sisiers were going to start there, but then we moved, so now they go elsewhere. I’m sure they would have loved to come to heavers farm! I was so sad when I had to leave. I was crying loads!
    From Sophie

  42. I thought it was sooooo good too! Me and my twin sisters watched it together πŸ™‚

  43. I LOVED the show. Absolutely loved it. The only problem was 5 episodes were not enough! Their journey is far from over and I would love to know how the stars of the show are doing in their new schools and their reaction to the show a year after it being shown. The show showed the kids pure emotion, their rawness and I honesty couldn’t stop watching it. Thank you Heavers Farm for allowing us to witness the diversity and pure heart of your School.

  44. Hiya guys I miss goodbye year six sooo much 5 episodes was NOT enough I really wish that I went to heavers farm it seems so cool my end of year party was nothing compared to that oh we’ll see ya’s

    Ps. Soooooo cool

  45. I know I don’t live in London but boyyy would I like to come to see my friends and the school. Amar here by the way!

  46. Hello Amar,

    Lovely to hear from you by the way! I hope that you are doing well in your new school. Maybe one day you could return to London and come and say hello to us all.

    Best wishes to all of your family.

    Ms Papas
