We said goodbye to Milly this afternoon at our class party. Erin and others spoke and we heard the following touching memories from the class.
I can’t believe I’m saying goodbye to one of my closest, prettiest, funniest, best friends. I still can’t believe you met Tanya Burr (I’m so jealous!) All the good times we had with make up and Facetime (we’re still going to). In reception I wouldn’t let go of you I loved you so much! I don’t know how I’m going to live without you in Year 6. Every time I look at Tanya’s videos I think of you (it’s gonna be hard). I will never forget the times when you would come around to my house and we would film really bad make up tutorials (I still have one – it’s really funny). When you told me you were leaving I literally cried at home. When you leave I will probably Facetime you all the time. We have always been best friends and gossiped about Zoe, Tanya…. (What if Zoe has a baby?! What am I going to do?!) I am going to miss you sooooooo much. Chloe
Since reception, I have always thought of you as the calmest, most modest member of the class, and in a way the whole world will all seem really loud and scary without you, and I’m also sure Erin will have a really hard time finding friends as good as you. Have a good time at your new house. Lucy.
Milly (Mildred). I can’t believe you are leaving, as we have been friends for ever. In reception you were the first friend I ever made, and we sat next to each other every lunchtime. That is one of my only memories of reception, and the best. I also remember Erin’s 9th birthday party, when I bought her ‘Berty Botts Every Flavour Beans’. We had to pick a bean with our eyes closed, and most of us ran to the toilet, puking. That was sooooo funny! I am really going to miss you Milly soooo much! Maddy
To me you were always a friend to come to if you were upset. From the day we first met you were always a friend to me. Even if I was mean, we would always work as a team. I may not see you again, but my friendship with you will never fade. Portia.
To my awesome friend Mildred. I will always remember in reception when you were on your half day and Erin was having a whole day. When your mum came to pick you up, I turned around from the toy train set and saw you and Erin clinging to each other crying. When you finally went home I had to spend the whole afternoon giving Erin hugs and telling her it was going to be OK without you. I will miss you so much. It won’t be the same without you. Sylvie. (p.s. I will also remember the OMG spa. Your only customer was Nicolas. Then we started Woodmints Hospital. Then the war began. It lasted many weeks until we both gave up. It was the stupidest argument ever. We couldn’t even talk to each other. It will stay in my head for years to come. )
I remember in the first days of reception, when you were the only person I really knew (because we went to the same nursery). I can’t remember all the details but I remember us scaredly searching the school building, trying to find the toilet! Funny memories. May
When me and Milly played together she would always make me laugh and we always had good times together. Milly and I were best friends and at lunch time we would sit next to each other and we would just talk instead of eating, most of the time. I don’t want Milly to leave because she is one of my best friends and she’s really kind to people. When Milly isn’t here I won’t know who to play with but I won’t forget her. I will miss you Milly. Have fun in New Romney! Celeste.
We are going to miss you so much, both of us. All the stuff we’ve gone through, both good and bad is going to stay with us forever. We are sad that you’re going but we’re happy for you to move on. Forever shall your memories stay in our minds and thoughts in our hearts. We love you Milly. Maggie and Delina.
Milly – remember the fun days that we had in reception. Remember in Year 5 when you and me rolled down the hill and we were laughing. Remember those days that me and you fell out in an argument but the next day we were friends. Hayley.
