Dear Year 6
It’s difficult to find the words to say everything that your teachers and I want to say, so here’s some words from Dr. Seuss instead.
Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you.
You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)
KIDS, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
So… be your name be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So… get on your way!
Mr Rees (but mainly Dr. Seuss – ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go’).
