Romeo and Juliet Assembly - Following the Crowd Theme (Shakespeare)

Romeo and Juliet Assembly - Following the Crowd Theme (Shakespeare)

This is a plan for an assembly about why we shouldn’t always follow the crowd, with a focus on William Shakespeare’s play ‘Romeo and Juliet’. There is a PowerPoint included that tells the story of Romeo and Juliet. 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 not only uses the Shakespeare story to introduce the theme, but allows the leader to tell an anecdote linked to a school scenario. You can use the example in the plan or use an anecdote from your own childhood. 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. (The PowerPoint is also available separately.)
