Girls sang, danced, read poems, and even a story in Spanish, all of which were interspersed with videos of the girls interviewing each other about their Mums. Girls had been asking each other why they loved their Mummy so much, and the responses had the audience reaching for their tissues!
The girls spoke thoughtfully and beautifully about how much their devoted Mums do for them: driving the car, washing hair, running the bath, making tea, giving cuddles, baking birthday cakes. The list was extensive and it was very clear the girls were grateful to have such wonderful support systems at home.
Each stage of the assembly was narrated by different girls, who showed confidence and great skill in remembering their tricky lines. They even managed to recite a complex timeline, explaining the way the concept of Mother’s Day originated and how it differs across many cultures. The assembly proved to be a truly joyful celebration of mothers and culminated with the girls handing out daffodils to family members who had come to watch. Even Ms Charlton’s Mum was there to watch, and received a flower from her own daughter!
We hope you all had a really special Mother’s Day.
