Christmas assembly - The Annunciation (trust and promises theme)

Christmas assembly - The Annunciation (trust and promises theme)

This is a plan for a Christmas assembly on Annunciation (when Mary was visited by the Angel Gabriel), with a focus on promises and trust. There is an attached PowerPoint with the assembly starter and the story of Annunciation. 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 the children discussing promises made by various people in their lives before listening to the story and again discussing. 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. Please note: The PowerPoint is also available separately from the assembly from Blossoming Minds Teaching Resources.

Want to significantly improve speaking and listening skills? This series of well-resourced lessons is just the ticket. Explores: banning of the burqa, animal testing, death penalty, high-earning athletes, the impact of religion, video games and nuclear weapons and more! An ofsted HMI said of one of the lessons: "An outstanding example of a teacher making a lesson fun and highly successful was in a religious education lesson where students were debating whether religion was a good or bad thing. The teacher made it absolutely clear how students needed to behave in order to be successful. He used time limits and targeted questioning exceptionally well to keep the pace of learning for all students brisk. Students made outstanding progress and did not realise how hard they were working."
