Yesterday Mr Westerman took assembly; it was about self discipline. He was gently asking questions about the word discipline when suddenly a frightening, booming voice started shouting commands from the back and a small troop of soldiers marched into chapel. We all jumped out of our skins! They certainly were well disciplined and well drilled and an excellent example of how to follow the rules set out by others. In contrast we needed to think about situations that relied on us making difficult decisions ourselves.

Year 4 stayed to meet and have their photo taken with the soldiers. They discovered they were real and not quite so frightening when ‘at ease’!

This blog comes to you direct from the Year 4 classroom. We have written this collaboratively in our English lesson which has focused on social media and how the news is reported.
