Year 2 Assembly on Perseverance

The Tortoise persevered in Aesop’s fable of the Tortoise and the Hare as retold this morning by Year 2 in their assembly. We then saw an inspirational video of Derek Redmond crossing the finishing line in the Barcelona Olympics with the help of his father after injuring his hamstring in the 400 m semi-finals. There were more than a few tears in the assembly hall when he received a standing ovation from the crowds in the stands.  Finally we all sang along with the sesame street characters learning how catch a ball.  Well done Year 2 for inspiring us all to never give up!
