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.

Advent calendar 2017

Our 2017 interactive calendars for primary schools and secondary schools have daily reflections and Christmas activities. Ideal for KS1/KS2 and KS3/KS4/Post-16 class prayers. Even better if you print the slides with cut-out baubles and let students build their own reverse Advent calendar. From 3 December, click the bauble with the correct date. A hyperlink takes you to that day's slide.

Holocaust Memorial Day Lesson Plan KS2

Holocaust Memorial Day Lesson Plan KS2

This is a flexible lesson plan aimed at Key Stage 2 learners (age 7-11), with different elements for you to choose from and deliver together as one lesson, or revisit over two sessions. This lesson plan works alongside a PowerPoint presentation. This lesson allows students to practice reading, writing and comprehension, as well as being introduced to the history of the Holocaust through the true story of Renie Inow, who came to the UK as a child refugee on the Kindertransport. Students can take part in a national postcard writing project by writing to Renie and receiving a message in response. This lesson is differentiated throughout for different abilities.

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

A lesson I used as an introductory lesson about migration and the different types of migrant and as a way of highlighting biases present in the media and our individual world view. Best used with new groups of students of any year 7-11 as most of the tasks are reflective and discussion based and involve random pairings and a main carousel activity. Very engaging and easy to manage lesson. Could definitely be used in a Tutor time/Citzenship lesson also and possibly for English to alert students to journalistic bias and to help them read texts more critically.
