Welcome back!!

It was really nice meeting you today after three long weeks! We have four more months in Y6 with lots of important events and knowledge to share together. Enjoy your days in primary school and take advantage of all the opportunities that are offered to you!

Now read this quotation:

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances." By Martha Washington

What is this quotation referring to?

What does it mean?

I am not realy shure of what it means, but what I filled is that we will hour have to do many things in our life that perhaps we want and enjoy them and perhaps not, but we have to go on. And also I thought of everything I did in promary school and everything is about to pass, perhaps noot only in primary but also in secondary. It was a very nice frase.

The first day of school after the winter holidays was like every other day except that in most of the school subject we are changing the subject that we are studing. But it was exausting. We have to get used to wajke upp early go to bed early. Ans my bags are very heavy. When I think that I spend more that 2/3 of my life with my friends friends that I have know I can't believe it. There are friends that you never forget and I thing that with the memory that I have I won't forget all the friends that I had and I yet have in primary school.
I think that what this quotion means is that we have to try our best. We don't have to let something make as give up. You always have to believe in your self and ifyou have to do something be determinated tio do it well and precise and if you can't the fisrt time you have to try and try and try again until you can. Becuase in life if you don't give the best of you you won't go anywhere. You have to be positive in every situation.That each other has to have despoition becuase we have to want to do it if not we can't. If you are negative you yo can't do it but if you are positive you can do everything yo want. In life we have to set goals and reach them in a positive way. This year in the holidays I set a lot of goals adn most of them are the same that the one on the quote.
Keep on Blogging!!!

Hi Miss Ale,
This quotation means that if you are in the greatest of circumstances in money and in life but you aren´t happy, your life is really a misery, and if you are poor but are happy of living, you are on a great situation. We have to be happy to have a nice life!
See you,

Hello Miss Florance
I can´t say anything because I wasn´t there but I wanted to read ny friends comments and how they felt and they really moved me because is true that we will always remember our friends and we are used to say at the end of the year see you next year and all of the friends that have been familiar for so long will change (some) I am in this school sice year kinder 3 or 2 and I now some people of around 9 or 8 years and some new that relly influed in my childhood. Bck to theme fro me it means:
That maybe you are not on the circunstance you prefer Ill try to be happy and try my way out to sadness and open a door to your happy place.
For me it referrs to:
Changing to another bulding and say a happy goodbye to things that where new and important once and maybe a word a phrase an object or even a person changed your life or said something that will always be in your heart. Changes are good but hard it is always good to discover soemthing new in this case new friends new feelings, teachers and other things.
I will like to say:
Is hard to grow-up when you are happy in a circunstance and you have to change to another and no one knows if it will be for good you just need to wait and see and be cheerfull in any circunstance.

I was very conmoved of this post and of the comments of my friends put. I really think this phrases you are posting make us think and remember.

Im not very good while explaining quotes but I will try the best I can, so I hik that the author is refering that, In our ocassion, that we got back to school and we were resting all the previous days so we lost all of our school routines but now that we get back to school we have to put all of our energies and in life there are going to be things that we are going to love, as there are going to be things that we are going to hate and we will not want to do, but life is life and we have to do things we like and things we dont with all the energie possible because maybe, one of these days we will notice that the things we didnt like are useful and we like them. So we have to learn not to give up the first time we try something, just do the best we can!
And I think that it is very interesting that you put this quote now because we just got back from holidays and lost all of our routines and now that we are getting to middle school we will get lots of challenges and subjects we are not going to like but we never now, maybe the day of tomorrow we want to study more of that subject that we didnt like.
Thank you for teaching us all this and tellig us never to give up!
See you tomorrow, kisses, Michelle.

I didn't understand to much, but I could understand that it meant about hapiness that we must enjoy even if we have a short time. I had great holidays and the first day was difficult. I am really ancious to write the mystery story because I have a big idea.

Hello Miss Ale,
The first day of school was a little bit hard because I had a lot of home work.
