Year 2’s special assembly

Year 2’s assembly

On Friday 17th January the children from Year 2 shared a special assembly all about the parable of The Good Samaritan.

The children acted out the story and reminded us of the compassion and love the Samaritan showed towards the Jewish man who had been injured and how this is an example for us to follow in our daily lives.

One Year 5 child said, “The assembly reminds me to love everyone like family and to be kind.”

Well done to everyone in Year 2, you did a brilliant assembly!
