    The Blame Game

    The Blame Game by Ruth Kenward - 5 to 9 yrs - KS1, KS2  (2m 09s)



    Theme   -  Resolving conflict

    Story  -  by Ruth Kenward  (approx 6 mins)

    ...Now you have to understand that Bailey and Joseph had never been in trouble before. Can you imagine how they felt, the very first time they’d actually been caught doing something naughty?  As they stood up and walked to the window, everyone was watching, so they felt very embarrassed. They wished everyone would stop staring.  Mrs. Jamal told the rest of the class to get back to their farmyard pictures, which they did, but the boys still hated being in trouble, and they started blaming each other. 

    ‘It was your fault!’ whispered Bailey, angrily. ‘You made me laugh!’
    ‘You started it!’ Joseph hissed at him. ‘And you crashed your car into mine!’
    ‘It was alright until you made your car explode!’ Bailey said, glaring, but Joseph was straight back at him. ‘You knocked the glue off the table, and Miss would never have noticed otherwise!’
    ‘I’m not playing with you anymore.’ Bailey said. 
    ‘I’m not playing with you either!’ Joseph replied.

    But they hadn’t noticed Mrs. Jamal coming over, and she had heard every word... 


    Song  -  by Ruth Kenward 

    The song gives the message that blaming others only makes things worse, and that using the ‘sorry’ word can go a long way towards mending relationship difficulties.  (Sample on the audio player above.)


    Reflection Points  -  samples

    1.  Do you know what the special word is?

    2.  Does saying 'sorry' work if you don't mean it?

    3.  Why do people play blame games?
