Advent AssemblyQuick View

Advent Assembly

This is a plan for an assembly on Advent, with a focus on preparing for Christmas. There is an optional simple PowerPoint on Advent traditions 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 using an anecdote about a December when you prepared for Christmas in all the wrong ways. You can use the example in the plan or use an anecdote from your own childhood. The children are then encouraged to think about how they can prepare for Christmas by thinking about others. 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.

German Advent Calendar quizQuick View

German Advent Calendar quiz

I crafted a powerpoint advent calendar. Clicking on each of the doors takes you to a revision question or general christmas question. After answering you return to the calendar page by clicking on the house button on the question slide. Currently filled in for a Y9 German (1st year of learning it), but easily modified for other subjects or languages. The background picture is also separate from the calendar doors, so easily swapped out for one of your liking. Merry Christmas ps - first version didn’t seem to work once uploaded. Apologies. Saved this as .ppt now, hopefully this version will work as intended.
Random Acts of Kindness Christmas Advent CalendarQuick View

Random Acts of Kindness Christmas Advent Calendar

This resource contains an interactive PowerPoint Advent calendar with the theme of acts of kindness. Each day an act of kindness is suggested. Acts include  Pick up ten pieces of litter in your school playground or in your home area this week. Remember to wear some gloves!  Hold the door open for someone.  If you see someone alone with no friends on the school playground go and talk to them and ask if they want to chat or play.  Tell a teacher how much you enjoyed their lesson.  Let someone else go first in a queue that you are in.  Give a Christmas card to someone you would not normally give one to.  Tell someone how much you love them.  Give someone a compliment today.  Donate your unwanted books, toys or games to a charity.  Sit with someone at lunch that looks lonely or that doesn’t have very many friends.  Do a chore or job at home that you would not normally do.  Do something nice for someone but don’t tell them or anyone else that you did it.  Say thank you to the school caretaker for the things he / she does.  Write a note to someone who has lit up their house with amazing lights and decorations to say thank you for lighting up their house for you to see and enjoy. (You could personalise some of these suggestions to make it applicable to your school or local community). After all the days have been opened, the calendar contains some reflective and evaluative questions to promote discussion and reflection. 1. Did you manage to complete the suggested acts of kindness? 2. Did you manage to complete an act of kindness and keep it secret from that person and not tell anyone? 3. How did being kind to others make you feel? 4. How do you think these acts of kindness made others feel? It concludes with the suggestion that maybe pupils could do an act of kindness every day in 2017, making it their New Year’s resolution.
