Back after the holiday.

Compromise. The online dictionary defines this as 'a settlement of differences by mutual concessions; an agreement reached by adjustment of conflicting or opposing claims, principles, etc., by reciprocal modification of demands.' It is something we must all learn to do. It is important in all our relationships, between friends, family, colleagues, nations. In our first assembly of the year, Years 5 and 6 acted out some situations which have often been seen in school (arguing over toys) and then all the children of the school discussed how they could make things better by compromising. Can we remember to compromise when it is needed? It would make our lives so much better.
