Maisie and Sacha

Maisie and Sacha

An Assembly Story for Primary Schools


This story for primary school assemblies is extremely pertinent to the vast majority of listeners. Every child experiences difficulties and conflicts with another at some point- whether this is with a classmate, friend or commonly- a sibling- like in the case of Maisie and Sacha. Here, the two girls’ relentless bickering whilst off school makes them both miserable, and exasperates their mother so that she ends up coaxing them to spend time working together- by joining her at Playgroup. In the process, Maisie and Sacha are forced to acknowledge that their squabbling has been incredibly immature, and more than this- both unnecessary and unkind. When they work together they realise that they don’t get on quite so badly after all and in actual fact- their combined forces are impressive; something they are proud of. Both girls are praised for their careful explanations and level of understanding, and it becomes clear to them that instead of being rash and quarrelsome, they should improve how they explain things to each other, moreover try to understand one another. Listeners will learn the same valuable lesson that Maisie and Sacha do here- that when you put aside your differences with somebody- you can reach bigger and better things. It is also important for children to recognise that they are bound to have differences with others, and often- that agreeing to disagree is the best solution.
