Robins today discussed the meaning of courage and shared their fears with one another:
We shared our views and opinions about whether we should avoid things we are scared of or face our fears. Some of the children shared examples of when they had showed courage:
Daisy – Sleeping in the dark
Sophie M – Jumping from a height into a pit of foam pit
Mohamed – Climbing a fence
Osama – Climbing high bars in P.E. Daring to smell the eggs in our science experiment
Jamie – Sliding down a space bowl at the swimming pool – there was a drop at the end
Tiffanie – Sleeping on the floor abroad. I was worried about bugs!
Riley – Crawling through a simulated cave on a Cub Scout camp last weekend
In partners, the class made up a poem entitled “Almost Nothing Scares Me!”
Cara & Sophie:
We wouldn’t be afraid of a dragon or a murderer
We would fight a Roman or a Celt for free
We wouldn’t run away from a tornado or acid rain
but lifts absolutely petrify us!
