Remembrance day - A time to remember and reflect.

The focus for this assembly is a short poem written in 1915 by Dr John McCrae. It is suitable for the whole Primary age range and encourages pupil participation in discussion around the subject of Remembrance Day. The learning intentions are:
• I am beginning to imagine what it must have been like to have been sent to fight in a war.
• I can understand some of the beliefs of those who were involved in wars.
• I know some things about how war impacted on families.

It is one from the Festivals theme by Mirror Assemblies but it also fits with many common Primary School Assembly themes like #Loyalty #giving #determintation #peace etc.

If you like this assembly and are looking for others for throughout the school year, you will find it more economical to purchase themes from where your school can subscribe to any number of themes for periods from one term to 5 years. This will allow you access to all new assembly materials added to that theme or those themes instantly.
Mirror Assemblies also provide ready-made assemblies including scripts presentations and linked music in the form of a presentation which encourages thought and reflection as a warm-up for the main part of the assembly.
