New Year 2018 Assembly: Welcome Back and Making Changes

New Year 2018 Assembly: Welcome Back and Making Changes

This assembly uses music, interesting facts about New Year, an inclusive 'hands up' activity and challenges students to adapt their approach to setting new year's resolutions and instead aim to be more reflective and make changes all the time to ensure they achieve successes in their education, personal and emotional lives. This assembly draws on facts that traverse a range of cultures and is overtly linked to the SMSC agenda. This would be a perfect assembly to use as a first assembly back in 2018 and will save you thinking/planning time over the festive season.

Christmas  End of Term Assembly

Christmas End of Term Assembly

This assembly uses humour to appeal to secondary age students and reiterate that Christmas does not have to mean not looking at your study books for 2-3 weeks. This assembly is one that stays in students' memories and resonates with them for a long time afterwards. The resource comes with a complete script and the powerpoint is fully animated to ensure that the visuals match the presentation. This is an assembly that my students loved and laughed about for a long time after first presenting this. WARNING: DO NOT SHOW THIS TO ANY YEAR GROUP WHO MIGHT STILL BELIEVE IN SANTA! :-)

Children in Need 2017

This Children in Need Assembly introduces the concepts of 'needs' through humour about '21st century problems' before considering real life problems and a powerful media experiment that shows privilege in a wholly visual way. The assembly closes with a guide as to what students can do to 'do their thing' and prompts to take away for discussion/action during a tutor session/PSHE lesson. The links in this assembly have been constructed using Windows 2016, as such I've attached a separate sheet with the links separately, just in case of any technical issues. 50% of the proceeds from this resource will be donated to Children in Need on the evening of 17th November, this is me doing my thing for Children in Need 2017...join in!
