In Assembly

She got a sticker
for being the
smileyest pupil
the first week in her
new school.
When they gave it
to her
she wondered,
had she been smiling?
Her face hurt
so she supposed she
must have been.
Somehow she already
knew.
People like you more
if you smile.

  1. surprisingly how quickly some children learn to navigate their way around their world – did you learn that you lovely sparklely lady?

  2. Very true. Fascinating having the time to observe Theo learning how to get a positive reaction from his four adult admirers during lockdown.I guess the wider school world can be harsh though. So much to learn!
