Good Morning Brown Clee!
I hope everyone has had a good weekend and enjoyed the good weather!
This week we will be continuing with the theme of ‘Respect’ in our daily assemblies – as Respect is such an important concept, and by learning about the different types of respect and how to be respectful, make such a big difference to everyone’s day-to-day experience – it can make the difference between having a good or ‘not so good’ day, and can make a different with how you feel about yourself.
Today, I would like you to think about yourself – and how unique and special you are. Have a think about what makes you different to your friends? Is it your hair colour? Your height? The number of brothers and sisters? Your family structure? Now think about what makes us all the same? ……….
First and foremost we are all humans – people with feelings, hopes and dreams. And as humans we all have a right to be respected – to be treated kindly. Have a watch of this video about a happy, dancing sheep who is full of beans and the love of life – until things changed…..as you watch, think about what messages you can learn from the story…
I don’t know about you – but this video made me smile! I think the sheep learnt an important lesson thanks to the Jackaloupe…..what do you think the lesson is? (and there might be more than one!)
I think the sheep learnt that it didn’t matter what it looked like – whether it had wool or not – what was important was how it lived it’s life. By dancing and being happy and positive, the sheep brought joy and happiness to it’s friends! As the Jackaloupe said…”Does it matter what colour,….sometimes you’re up, and sometimes you’re down, you’ve still got your body, and still got your feet! Get your head in the right place and you’re complete!”. Simply put – respect yourself, be proud of who you are and be positive in “this world of ups and downs”!
It is now time to have a quiet moment and reflect – think about times when maybe you have been down, have lost your confidence, or felt sad…..what could you do yourself to help you ‘bounce back’ and put a smile on your face? (ps this is a very grown up skill and is called resilience!)
