Today 1GJ led the ethos assembly about ‘I am proud of what I do and value the achievements of others’.
The children shared their achievements including sports certificates, Beaver badges, crafts, medals, rosettes, collections, photos and school work. Year 1 are a very talented bunch!
I explained that I am proud of my baritone playing even though I am still a beginner. I am playing in a concert soon. The other players are much younger than me but I am proud that I have learnt enough to join in!
The children thought about the need to value other people’s achievements. In the story ‘Dogs Don’t Do Ballet’ the grown-ups think that Biff the dog can’t do ballet. Luckily his owner, a little girl, values her dog’s ambitions. Eventually Biff dances on stage in a tutu and everyone is proud of him. We all need to remember to value the achievements of others.
The assembly was a huge success. Well done Year 1, I am proud of you all.
