International Day of Happiness 20th March Presentation/Assembly Key Stages 3 to 5 A change in attitudes is underway all over the world.

But how do we define happiness? Is it something we are born with or is it something we can learn? People have agonized over these questions for centuries. A big part of how happy we are depends on our mind-set, the habits we practise, and the way we live each day. By learning the key ingredients of happiness, we can use them to become happier. This age-appropriate assembly aims to; Highlight some of the World Happiness 2020 report findings Raise awareness of the current science around happiness Ask students to consider their own attitudes to it Suggest strategies to increase happiness Comprising of a: 31-slide power-point presentation Detailed script Music accompaniment Prayer for happiness This presentation can be used as an assembly and/or as part of a Happiness/Wellbeing project.

**Preparing to Sing-Fun Vocal Warm-Ups Suitable for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils. A set of warm-up vocal exercises for young voices** Think of warming up as exercising for your voice. What happens to your voice when you warm up is actually similar to what happens to athletes’ muscles when they stretch and exercise. Warming up loosens those muscles, helps to remove excess mucous and reduces the risk of injury. Regular vocal warm-ups also keep your voice in shape. Just as with other muscles in your body, you need to develop your singing muscles to work efficiently and as they become stronger, your voice will too. Introducing a warm-up routine before you sing will improve the sound quality of your performance. You do not have to have a musical background to deliver these activities. This resource is in two sections. Part one should always be worked through before singing and part two includes a varied selection of ten exercises to choose from when preparing your pupils to sing.
