The PowerPoint is a specifically Catholic lesson on vocation although it could be adapted for use in other lessons exploring the ways Christians choose to live their lives or the idea of vocation in the wider Christian tradition.
Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it.
It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks.
It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want.
Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.
A game to improve communication skills.<br />
The teacher will split you into two teams. One person from the first team will be selected to sit in front of the whiteboard. They will not be able to see the screen. On the screen a word will pop up, along with an image and clue words. The objective is to get the person to guess the word correctly. Your team has 1 minute to help your team member guess the correct answer. However, you will not be able to say any of the words on the screen (including the title.) You will also not be allowed to do any actions, impressions or stand up...and no shouting. You are not allowed to say things like… “It starts with the letter A.”<br />
It is 3 points for a clean win (with no deductions.) Points will be deducted if team players say the words on the board.<br />
