Martin Luther King JR once said “I have a dream”. I think everybody in grade 5 is closer to the dream they have because of their education, commitment and passion for what they love and want to do.
People always told me “you are growing up so quickly” and I did, even though it was a few centimeters.They said that I was so close to finishing Elementary School, but I never imagined it would go by so quickly. I’m going to grade 6 after the summer break. It’s in just a couple of months and It’s still going by quickly.
Some of the most important things happened or are going to happen this year. Exhibition and moving up to middle school. They are both so important. They helped our growth In ES we learned to be independent yet cooperative, cautious yet being risk takers. I went into my class in grade 5 without ,honestly, any of my best friends. But now I have more friends. We also did UN summit,Sports and athletics day and camp. We learned from those things.
I remember all the memories we’ve had in the past. Starting Second grade was so nerve wrecking. I came to UNIS without any of my friends, but people were so accepting. In no time I had plenty of friends. Jumping all the way back to 5th grade, Exhibition. It tired all of us! The week after exhibition was really confusing. The homework and the schedule. The normal felt weird. Of course we have done many more things but it would an endless list.
Throughout ES we have learned a lot of things and our ideas have become better and better in that process. We have all changed socially, emotionally and academically. We have grown. We have good memories and bad memories from classes. In ES we learned so many different things from so many different classes.
Everyone knows that we couldn’t get up to this point without motivation and the passion for learning. But we also couldn’t get here without our teachers and TA’s. Some people don’t like their teacher or have had a bad teacher in the past but you learn something from everybody.
Back to Martin Luther King JR’s “I have a dream”, I’m Sure I speak for most if not everybody in grade 5 when I say everybody has a dream and if they finished or achieved it, we get a new dream.
I wrote it by myself and it was for the grade 5 graduation ceremony.
