Year 6 Motivational Writing

Year 6 Motivational Writing

All of our Year 6s have been writing motivational speeches to send to the Olympic Get Set competition this week. The winning speeches will be read to our Olympic competitors. We thought all our Year 6s did a great job and all deserve to win. Oliva’s writing below is a great example of how well they have done.


What do you want to be? Do you want to be remembered as the person who kept going, or do you want to be remembered as the first person to give up at the first hurdle? Only you can make that dream you have come true. Only you can get back up when you fall. Only you can make your dreams a reality.

The world is a difficult place to live; you don’t become successful from sitting around. You need to get up, get out there and show the world what you are made of. Don’t be afraid to fail. Learn from your mistakes. He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right. You are amazing no matter what anyone says and you can be the next person who wins a Great Britain gold medal.

Pain is only temporary. It can last a second, a minute. It could last a day or a year, but remember if you quit, it will last a lifetime. Every day we fall, we become stronger, stronger and stronger. Don’t cry because of the pain, do not cry to quit. Cry to keep on going.

Sacrifice what you are for what you will become. Nobody is going to hit you as hard as life will and nobody is going to pull you down. Sight can be replaced by guides, limbs replaced by wheelchairs but everybody has to overcome a challenge; even you. Show the world how amazing you are, how great you are!

Be an inspiration. Be resilient.

Now, what are you going to do?
