World Book Day 2018: Assembly

World Book Day 2018: Assembly

This assembly explores how reading has changed over time, why we should read, the benefits of reading, the ethos of World Book Day and the link to the Greatest Book Show on Earth (courtesy of WBD) and challenges students using humour to rethink their habits and to mark this years World Book Day and 'Share a Story'. This assembly is suitable for both primary and secondary students.

Royal wedding assembly

Royal wedding assembly

A 19 slide assembly to be used in the run up to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The PPT looks at the weddings of Prince William, Price Charles and the Queen; royal wedding traditions and what we might see on May 19th. Also, I look at why Britons enjoy royal weddings so much and some basic psychology behind it. Lastly, there are a couple of slides showing the downside of a royal wedding (cost) and a look at a fundraising initiative called 'The Royal Bedding Day'. Lots of information and pictures of the royal family. Could be used from KS2 upwards. NB Sometimes preview slides have missing words or appear unformatted. Your actual download will be as the original. Thanks for looking.
