Younger children often have penchants for attention seeking, tantrums and sulking- with little warrant for their bad moods. Teachers who have encountered this kind of behaviour before will be relieved and grateful to understand that they are not alone and that it will come to a close!

Miss Timms is a brand new teacher and she is very nervous about her first day in action. Much to her surprise, everything appears to be going swimmingly, at least until she meets Norman at lunchtime. Norman has decided to be especially stubborn because he isn’t getting his own way, and at first Miss Timms is struggling to have any impact on Norman. When she maintains a clear head, she manages to outsmart him though, and he begins to understand that his sulking is not going to amount to any success. Thus, Norman has learnt his lesson and Miss Timms has more confidence in her own abilities as a teacher to overcome her nerves.

This story for Primary school assemblies will offer teachers who have struggled with students with similar behavioural complexities some solace, whilst demonstrating the importance of perseverance. This story very importantly makes mention of Miss Timms’ nerves, something which young children may very easily overlook and disregard, and therefore, knowing this urges them to be considerate - to ‘spare a thought’.

Children are also provoked to have some faith in their teacher’s consideration too. Miss Timms doesn’t get angry or exasperated with Norman, only helps him to understand that his mulish attitude is futile. The story shows children that Norman’s attention seeking is pointless so that they are less likely to repeat similar behaviours – and instead, they should be more vocal about their desires and thoughts and will be much more likely to reach a resolution. Children are encouraged to be respectful of authority, and others in general.
