Upgrade OSX on 2011 MacBook Air ???

I'm dusting off my old 2011 13" MacBook Air to give to a family member.  It is running Yosemite 10.5.5.   Should I upgrade the operating system?   To latest MacSierra?  El Capitan?

Do any of you have any experience to share - upgrading older machines to newer versions of Mac OS?

They don't plan to do heavy lifting on this 4gig I5 machine, just email, word processing and web browsing.   Still, I would hate to inadvertently bog down this machine by loading up a version of the Mac OS that slows it down (even if it is literally spec'd to run).

Thank you.
