Our second class assembly of the year was about endurance, our focus school value for the first part of the spring term. Leo the lion cub was having a bit of trouble at school. The other cubs were learning how to roar but all Leo could manage was ‘miaow’. He tried to skip but got tangled in the rope. Then he tried to read but couldn’t even hold the book the right way up. Leo could have given up but he didn’t. He showed endurance and kept on trying until he achieved his goals. We thought about how, throughout life, we can be like Leo and keep on trying until we achieve our goals too.
