Year 6 Assembly and Words of Advice

The day is nearly here, that you will no longer be Primary students. The milestone has been reached and the signpost is pointing the way to a new path. It is pointing towards being a teenager- up and down emotions, pimples, part-time jobs, lots more study are all a part of where you are headed. Secondary school is on the horizon and a new path to journey down.

It can be daunting and nerve-wracking...and that’s just for your Mum and Dad!

What advice would I give to these budding young men and women of the future?

Cope with failure and learn from your mistakes: You will make them! They can be your greatest teachers if you let them. They teach resilience, persistence and the ability to never give up. They help shape your character and teach you to be a better person.
Like who you are: You are the most amazing and unique individual that God has created. He made you be you! Don’t let others define who you are, resist the temptation to try and be the popular one, or the sporty person or the….just be YOU!
Be Kind: Luke 6: 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. There is no hardship to be kind and kindness brings rewards like friendship and having an open mind. It is finding the best in others and it encourages others to be kind. Often the smallest of deeds or the simplest of words can have the greatest impact on another person.
Slow Down: Don’t be in a hurry to grow up! Take your time and learn things well. It will build a good foundation for all things that are ahead of you and leave you with many memories of the great times that you had.
Be a lifelong learner: The ability to learn does not stop once you leave school. The world ahead is rapidly changing and you need to develop the skills and creative thinking to be able to adapt. Learn to love learning new things, find out what you are good at and try new skills. It’s all part of the adventure!
Listen.... listen to your teachers, to your parents, to your peers.  Learn to listen and really hear what others are saying.  This is a life skill that many children and adults were never taught - Chad Jones
Be Practical
Don't procrastinate - - get it started! ( opposed to "Get it done.") - David Crumbaker
Develop good study habits - Laura Stipancich
Read the directions - @LindaAragoni
Wear sunscreen. (Sorry. Couldn't help it.) - Rodney Fields
Remember the Lord: Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them” Ecclesiastes 12:1

As this year closes and the end of Year 6 draws to the end, I look at each one of these amazing young people who have grown so much this year. It has been a joy and a privilege to be the teacher that is able to be the last in your Primary school years. I know that there will be other teachers and you will learn many new things, but I hope that you look back on 2017 as one of the fond memories and that it was a truly wonderful year. To quote the wise words of Dr Seuss

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

Creating and making with textiles

This term, we have been looking at using textiles as a medium for creativity. Using wool or natural fibres to create something wearable is an ancient art. Some of the best memories that I have, when growing up was of creating felt and dyeing fabrics. This was the inspiration for the project for my Creativity project. After approaching our agricultural department for some raw alpaca fleece, the first step was to was this very dirty fleece. This was dirty, but a lot of fun! After it had dried, we dyed the wool and then felted it. The felting process takes a lot of work, hot water and soap. It requires the wool to be placed into a tea towel after it was carded to get rid of the rest of the dirt. There was a lot of enthusiasm to have a go. Rubber gloves were essential to protect little hands! This took much longer than anticipated so we have used purchased felt to make our creations The next step was to learn to sew using a needle and thread. To help this pro
