Round The Corner (Assembly)

Round The Corner by Ruth Kenward - 5 to 7yrs - KS1  (1m 54s)



Theme  -  Finding positives in bad times

Story  -  by John & Ruth Kenward  (approx 5 mins)

Harry was having a hard time. Everything seemed to be going wrong. First there was the accident in the playground. He was walking round a corner when suddenly a football came flying past and he tripped over it, twisting his ankle badly. 'Ow!' he cried out. 'It really, really hurts!' Harry was a brave boy, but his ankle hurt so badly it made him cry.

He had to go to the hospital for an x-ray, and the doctor told him good news and bad news. The good news was that his ankle wasn't broken, but the bad news was he'd have to rest for a while to help it get better.
'But I'll miss our class assembly!' he said, 'and I've got a special part in it!'

'Look on the bright side,' the doctor replied. 'You can play all day!'

Back home, with a large bandage wrapped around his sprained ankle, Harry settled down to play with his racing cars. It was fun to begin with, but then disaster struck...


Song  -  by Ruth Kenward

You never know what’s round the corner: it could be scary or fun - stormy or sun! But if we don't step round each 'corner' in our lives we might never get to see what lies ahead - which might be treasure at the rainbow's end!  A catchy song with an unusual theme. (Sample on the audio player above.)
