be you.

I went to see The Blind Side yesterday at the movies. It was a cute movie, and I can for sure see why Sandra Bullock won her Oscar.

Without giving too much away, the story of Ferdinand the bull was mentioned in the movie. Of course it was deliberate to the story line, and when you watch the movie, you will know why.

Ferdinand is a bull who, as you all may know, was created by Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson. Ferdinand would rather smell flowers than be involved in bullfights. The story demonstrates a clear message, that even though Ferdinand is a bull, it doesn't mean he has to act like one.

The story has a message, which for children is important. Every person has the freedom to define who they are and what they want to be. This would be a great story to use as a stimulus for learning about aspirations or any PSHE lesson with children.

Happy Monday! Have a good week ahead!
