Be Optimistic (assembly)

Be Optimistic (assembly)

“Be Optimistic” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To encourage students to: “Be Optimistic”, (by informing them of the benefits of having an optimistic outlook in life.) Increase your resilience. Take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world. The first half of the assembly is based on an optical illusion and how you don’t see something how it is you see it how you are. It’s not logical, it’s pyscho-logical. The second half of the assembly tells the story of a man with no arms and no legs and how he had a terribly depressed experience of life until he made the decision in his mind to be more optimistic and see the opportunity in every difficulty, as opposed to the difficulty in every opportunity! The assembly has 19 slides and 2 video clips. It will last 15-20minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. I have embedded the video clips and included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resouces you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and incase the students want to watch them again at home. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students, which is always the main aim of my assemblies.

Creative Writing Resource: Shared Writing Lesson

Creative Writing Resource: Shared Writing Lesson

This is a customisable resource for English designed to get the creative juices flowing. A list of random words (choice of 2 - 5) is generated and pupils are challenged to come up with ways of including all of them in a piece of collaborative writing. As the class comes up with ideas, the teacher records them by typing on the onscreen board. The work can be saved at the end of the session. If pupils are not used to this kind of exercise, I suggest beginning with the 2 word sentence option. Challenge them to make sentences that make links between the words. You can move on to the other options in the menu as they become more confident… Although designed for use in English classes, this resource can easily be adapted for other subjects and for whole school sessions like assemblies. It is great for CPD too (safeguarding training, for instance). The PowerPoint file is stored in a folder with a text file named ‘words’. By replacing the words on this list by your own, the words generated on the screen can be related to any topic you like. Make sure that you keep the text file and the PowerPoint file together, however, or the nothing work. I have included a separate folder with three extra word lists (summer, adjectives, and synonyms for ‘said’). If you decide to use them, you need to rename them as ‘words’ and swap them with the original file in the main folder. You need to enable macros on your computer to use the resource, otherwise nothing will happen!

PSHE: New PSHE Bundle 2018-19

10 hours of new PSHE lessons on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues facing students in 2018/19. These topics have been identified by the PSHE Association as essentials for the coming year and so this bundle has been planned following their recommendations. All 10 lesson packs are complete with at least one hour-long powerpoint, accompanying differentiated worksheets, clip links with questions, plenaries, clear LOs, starters and engaging, varied main task activities.All are well differentiated to three levels throughout to enable clear evidence of progress for all students. These lessons have been selected to be in this bundle as they all focus on relatively new issues or ones which need further awareness amongst young people in the diverse world of technology, fake news and potentially tough futures which lie ahead. These resources have been highly-rated individually by TES users, follow the same consistent format and are easy to follow. There is zero extra work required, although each lesson is still completely editable too. I use all of these myself as a Head of PSHE and Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value. I’ve put literally months of time into this to make these lessons top quality for my own school team. Please leave me a review and I’ll send you any other resource of your choice for free.

Non-violence

Non-violence

During the sessions, the facilitator is encouraged to allow the participants to think about the topic, express their viewpoints, share their experiences and explore its applicability in day to day life. The facilitator would allow the participants to arrive at their own conclusions, rather than imposing his views or opinions – they could even be different from the thoughts given here. DESCRIPTION (Thoughts such as, what does non-violence mean, what it is all about and what its different facets are, may enable the facilitator understand it better. Some such thoughts about non-violence are given below.) Non-violence is a state of abstaining from violence – physical or psychological It’s an act of refraining from committing any sort of harm or injury to anyone / anything. Non-violence is not causing pain or harm of any sort through thoughts words or actions. The intent and questions to be followed in the preparation document.

Be nice - assembly

Be nice - assembly

“Be nice” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To remind students to “Work hard. Be nice”. (My favourite saying) A previous assembly (“Growth mindset”-which I will also post on TES shortly) focused on the “Work hard” part so you improve your intelligence and talents. This assembly focuses on the “Be nice” part so that we may enjoy stronger friendships and other healthy relationships. This assembly is based on 3 stories. There are morals to each story that can be explored to encourage students to: be nice to others, treat others how you want to be treat, take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world, and don’t let others decide how you will act or feel. (This is a concept used in my Life coaching called TFAR – Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Results, and is explained to an appropriate depth in the notes within the PowerPoint on slide 6.) The assembly has 9 slides and no video clips, so no need to worry about your school internet letting you down! It will last 10-15minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The three stories to tell are wrote as a script in the notes at the bottom of the relevant slide. However, since the notes are not visible once you start the PowerPoint, for your convenience, I have also copied the stories onto slides 10, 11, 12 so you may print them off prior to the assembly to learn by heart, or, to read from during the assembly if you wish. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students.
