In lower school assembly today, we read the brilliant book ‘Dogs Don’t Do Ballet’.
The children did some great thinking as well as looking and listening. We discussed the book’s message and what we could learn from it. Here’s what the children said:
“Different people can do lot’s of different things.”
“Believe in yourself and you can do anything you want.”
“Try hard and don’t give up.”
Then we discussed what we can say to someone to encourage them, if they feel like they can’t achieve something. The children said:
“You can do it!”
“Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.”
“Everything is for everybody!”.
“I’ll help you”.
Then Miss Lindsay popped into assembly and told us then when she was younger, an adult once told her she couldn’t play football because she was a girl!
The children were shocked so they tested out their encouraging advice on Miss Lindsay!
