"He's normally such a wriggler and NEVER sits still!"

"What did you sprinkle on X? He's normally such a wriggler and NEVER sits still! Can I have some of whatever it was!" exclaimed a teacher to Mary after her assembly.

The little boy had listened opened-mouthed to the story and watched intently as a child at the front was wrapped up in loo roll!!

The assembly was all about the mess we can get into when we tell lies, and after listening to the fable by Aesop about The Boy Who Cried Wolf, the children went on to hear the "whopper" that Jacob told Isaac when he pretended he was Esau, the eldest son. They thought about how, when we feel tangled up and in a mess, God can and will forgive us when we say sorry and how he can give us a fresh start.

"The truth will set you free!" said Jesus...
