Harvest Festival Assembly

Harvest Festival Assembly

This is a plan for an assembly on Harvest, with a focus on the theme of thankfulness. There is a PowerPoint on what harvest is and how it is celebrated in Britain included. The plan is easy to follow and requires no resources, so is perfect for using at the last minute! I like leading assemblies that are interactive, engaging and relevant to the children's lives. So this assembly involves an anecdote to make it more relevant to the children. You can use the example in the plan or use an anecdote from your own day. This is then linked to Judas the theme of harvest. There is a lot of opportunity for children to think about their own experiences and to feedback. There is also an example prayer/reflection to finish with.
