every child’s dream is to become famous, but could it turn into a nightmare?
sure being famous can be good with all the money and fame but it’s not what it’s cut- out to be, and here are some reasons why.
firstly the pressure of being a celebrity is horendous. people screaming your name everywhere. secondly being famous gives you nearly no privacy at all, and paparazzi is mostly the cause of this epidemic. for example, one celebrity got photographed in the toilet and it was all over the internet.lastly happiness, happiness is different to everyone, but there is a new sort that should not be classed as happiness. drugs, they are extremely dangerous if over taken. a lot of celebrities take them now and it is the cause of a lot of deaths.
in conclusion fame is not what it’s carcked up to be so if your wanting to be famous, just have second thoughts about it.
I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and a most enjoyable holiday. By now you must be getting excited about returning to school and catching up with your friends again. Have fun sorting out your books and trying on your uniform to see how much you have grown since last year. You can expect the work to be a little harder than last year but I’m sure your Year 5 teachers have prepared you well.
The academic year starts on Thursday 3rd February and I have been busy planning and organising a range of tasks and activities for you. You can expect Term 1 to be very busy with some of the highlights being our camp to Wilsons Promontory and House Swimming.
Throughout the year we will explore the many benefits of technology in enhancing our learning and broadening our understanding of the world in which we live. This blog has been set up for all Year 6 students to share their learning.You will also learn to access Learning Point in preparation for the Middle School. A range of tasks, including homework and assessment tasks will be set and results will be posted. Tasks will be set for you on Mathletics with the aim of achieving 85% or higher. Set tasks must be completed before you can access Mathletics Live.
I know many of you are already very familiar with the routines of The Peninsula School, but by Year 6 we expect you to be independent and to take greater responsibility for your learning and your actions. Wearing correct school uniform is also expected as is having each item clearly named. Homework will be set every week, so organise yourself so that you can complete the tasks promptly and accurately.
We have had a number of hot days during summer and I am sure that we can expect many more when we return to school. Remember to bring a water bottle so that you can refresh yourself throughout the day. Sweet drinks are not necessary. You will also need your sunhat for all outside activities.
Year 6 is a very special year as it is your final year in the Junior School. Your position in the school is a very important one as many will be looking up to you for leadership and setting appropriate examples of behaviour. By the end of the year I hope you will have many fond memories, learned many new things, made great friends and grown in confidence. I am looking forward to getting to know you better and sharing many exciting experiences with you. Wishing you all the best for 2011.
