This morning, Infants and Juniors enjoyed an excellent class assembly from Year 2, with the theme of ‘being helpful.’ The class began by acting out some familiar fables and parables meant to illustrate how important it is to be helpful; these included the parable of the long spoons, the fable of the ant and the dove and the fable of the horse and the donkey.
The children also displayed some posters showing their own ideas for being helpful to parents, fellow pupils, and others. And they talked about some helpful figures from history they’ve been learning about, including Florence Nightingale. Captain Cook, Samuel Pepys and James Watt. They ended the assembly with a terrific poem they wrote about being helpful. Well done to all of the children for such a ‘helpful’ assembly!
