Assembly - Anti-Bullying, Think Before You Post

Assembly - Anti-Bullying, Think Before You Post

This assembly focusses on anti-bullying but more specifically cyber bullying. The opening part of the assembly defines bullying and also explains the different types of bullying providing examples of each in schools. These are verbal, social and physical bullying. The next section of the assembly uses a video called 'In Real Life' which is a social experiment that shows what happens when online bullying is taken offline. This is a very cutting video where people say some quite horrific to people in the public. The things that the people are saying are quotes taken from other people's social media. The moral of the video is that a lot of people say things online that they would never dream to say to someone face to face. This is followed by some key facts and figures about cyber bullying and then some general tips with the tag Think Before YOU Post. The final section of this assembly shows how students can report bullying at my school. This will need to be amended for each individual school.

Assembly - Perseverance,  Never Give Up

Assembly - Perseverance, Never Give Up

The focus of this assembly is about perseverance. The first clip is taken from the film 'Catch me if you can'. It takes a scene where someone describes two mice falling into a bucket of milk. Once drowns but the other tries so hard to get out that it churns the milk into butter and walks out the bucket. The next clip is taken from 'Educating Yorkshire'. It shows a young man with a speech impediment trying to talk through some work and getting frustrated. The next clip is one of him speaking in the Year 11 leavers assembly. The next section shows Andy Murray getting upset after losing the Wimbledon final followed by the moment he won Wimbledon the following year. I then go on to talk about how in these situations both people went on to be successful by not giving up and persevering with the challenges ahead of them. This then links in to the challenges that the students will face this academic year. The assembly finishes with a quote by Gary Player who once said “It's funny but the more I practice, the luckier I get.”

Expectations for the New Academic Year, First Assembly

Expectations for the New Academic Year, First Assembly

I have used this assembly recently as the first assembly of the new academic year for my house. I start the assembly by talking through how this time of year is a great time to reflect on the past year and to decide what needs to change or be kept the same to be successful for the new academic year. I then show a definition of 'expectations' and that this is a strong belief that something will happen. I explain that I have a number of basic expectations for the house to ensure that we are successful on both an individual and house basis. This then leads into expectations of uniform, behaviour, using a planner, being organised, not littering etc with pictures for each topic. I then talk through what the house can expect from staff and the what I expect from them and that there will be no passengers this year with everyone contributing. The section of the assembly is a trailer from a film called the yes man. I play this until half way through to the point where Jim Carey go to a conference and is told that he must so yes to every opportunity given to him. This then links into all the challenges/key school events that I have taken from the school calendar and I ask the group to not see these as negatives but to see these as opportunities to improve and achieve. I finish the assembly by saying the success of failure of this year will be the students' attitude towards these challenges and that as a team supporting each other it is going to be a very exciting and successful year for the house.

Assembly - Mental Health Awareness, Facts, Tips and Support

Assembly - Mental Health Awareness, Facts, Tips and Support

This assembly is centred around mental health awareness and I used this during the national childrens' mental health awareness week. I open the assembly with a definition of mental health and the #timetotalk which I explain is the key message of the assembly. I also show a gif which says 'mental health is real, even if you cannot see it' and use the example of being able to see someone is is physically injured for instance on crutches however, you cannot see a mental health illness or injury. The next section of the assembly is a short video about talking about mental health and how this is no longer a taboo subject and is something that as a school community we are aware of and support. The next section of the assembly identifies that there are over 200 forms of mental health illness and I use three quiz questions to show how big of an issue this is nationally. The final section of the assembly contains a number of helpful tips to maintain good mental health. I then finish the assembly with the national statistic that 'Nearly three in four young people fear the reactions of friends when they talk about their mental health problems'. I conclude by saying that as a school and house community we are here to support each other and that mental health is not a taboo subject and one which we accept.

Assembly - The Lance Armstrong Story - Persevere and Do Not Cheat Yourself

Assembly - The Lance Armstrong Story - Persevere and Do Not Cheat Yourself

The assembly is based on the story of Lance Armstrong. The first section shows a picture of Lance Armstrong and asks the question who is and why is he famous? The next clip shows a short video about the rise and fall of Lance Armstrong. The key facts about his careers and then his demise. I then talk through the timeline of his famous rise and fall. The next is a trailer of the famous documentary that was taken throughout his career where he admits lying to the public and covering up his performance enhancement use. The final clip is a Nike advert that stars lance Armstrong. In this advert he says 'people often ask me what I am on, what am I on? My bike 6 hours a day, what are you on?' I then go on to relate the Armstrong Lie to school. How Lance Armstrong knew he was cheating but created a cover story to make him look like he was working 6 hours a day to achieve his goals and not cutting corners by cheating. The assembly then finishes by asking students to not be a Lance Armstrong. To not tell parents, staff, friends that they are working hard/revising if they are not really. To be honest so that people are aware if they need support and can put that in place. I finish by asking the group to pereservere with their challenges but asking for help is not a weakness. It is actually a huge strength.

The practical worksheet should be used alongside a practical heart dissection. The worksheet contains 15 questions that will guide students through a heart dissection. I have used this hand out for years, it is very effective.
