Christmas assembly - The birth of Jesus - Refugees theme

Christmas assembly - The birth of Jesus - Refugees theme

This is a plan for a Christmas assembly on the birth of Jesus, with a focus on journeys and refugees. There is an attached PowerPoint with the story and relevant facts for the assembly. 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 some volunteers acting out the story and a discussion about how refugees make similar journeys to Mary and Joseph. There is a lot of opportunity for children to think about their own experiences, current events and to feedback. There is also an example prayer/reflection to finish with. Please note: The PowerPoint is also available separately from the assembly from Blossoming Minds Teaching Resources.
