Assembly: Humility to take advice. Assembly Collective Worship for Key Stage 2, KS3, KS4

Assembly: Humility to take advice. Assembly Collective Worship for Key Stage 2, KS3, KS4

This is an assembly which explores the theme of 'Humility' and focuses on the issues of showing humility in taking advice. This assembly works well for Key Stage 2, KS3 or KS4 (has been delivered to all!) and can also be used as Collective Worship - a prayer is included at the end. The assembly starts by exploring the story of Icarus and Daedalus with a FULL SCRIPT included. You will then raise the issues of humility in general and link to others trying hard to take advice (example is the infamous Kayne West with full notes in the notes section). You will then ask a series of questions to the group, class, form or whole school. These questions can either be delivered rhetorically or open to discussion. If you like it please leave 5 start : ) !
