PP Assembly: Harvest: A Labour of Love

PP Assembly: Harvest: A Labour of Love

This is a Power Point assembly for harvest that is suitable for Secondary School. It would suit all religious faiths and can easily be adapted. It includes a You Tube link to a harvest film showing that it is not an isolated activity that farmers do in September but a culmination of 12 months of planning, hard work and love. This then becomes the theme of the assembly: six lessons we can learn from harvest. For introductory music I'd suggest 'Sowing The Seeds of Love'. Alternatives could be: Sting: Fields of Gold or to be traditional 'We Plough the Fields and Scatter' or even 'Harvest Moon' A final film clip could be You Tube: Pay It Forward Acts of Kindness included. Pour yourself a large glass and chill! Feedback would be nice. Any probs drop me an email.

PP Assembly: St Valentine:priest, wedding planner and martyr

PP Assembly: St Valentine:priest, wedding planner and martyr

This is a Secondary school assembly that covers the following: 1. How do we celebrate St Valentine's day? 2. Who Was St Valentine? 3. What is his message? Music for intro could be Bowie or the more recent Isakov's Valentine's Day or endless Beetles scores about love. Could even go upmarket and impress the Classists with a Shostakovich waltz. Soundtrack from the recent film about Romeo and Juliet with the camera sweeping the Italian Renaissance villas (wrong period of Italian history but very romantic) might be just a little too indulgent. Tell me the music you used.Inspire. Below is a basic outline of the Saint which you could use. The rest is done for you but can easily be slighly adapted. Enjoy and share your Valentine Day with me. He was a Roman Priest in Roman times when Claudius was emperor. He was persecuted the church at that time,He also had an edict that prohibited the marriage of young people. This was based on the hypothesis that unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers because married soldiers might be afraid of what might happen to them or their wives or families if they died.

PP Assembly: Materialism: Life+Money =Happiness?

PP Assembly: Materialism: Life+Money =Happiness?

Everybody knows who Gandhi is. Who knows Jesse Stone? Jesse Stone This assembly is based on the above quote and is aimed at Secondary school children. It covers the following; 1. What is materialism? 2. What is the problem with materialism? 3. What is the solution to materialism? As of January 2018 it is the only TES assembly on Materialism! It can be adapted to Primary children or used in an RE lesson. Opening song as children file into the hall could be the Flying Lizards 1979:Money That's What I want and the You Tube link is given on the Power Point. Others could be Madonna's 'Material Girl' , Spice Girls 'Tell You What I Want' or Lennon's 'Imagine'.Tell me what you use and why you chose this topic for an assembly. Then it's an extract from 'The Wolf of Wall Street' (Clean) to show the destructive powers of money on character. Clearly you can easily adapt this assembly to the post-Christmas period or your own requirements; e.g. stealing/lying. I also include an extract from the 'Guardian' of last year-2017- about the beginning of a realisation that if E= money then we don't get to MC squared=happiness Any problems or queries please email me directly. Positive feedback telling me how you used or adapted this assembly would be really nice!

PP Assembly: A Journey To Epiphany

PP Assembly: A Journey To Epiphany

This assembly would suit Secondary children. Good opening music would be 'Star of Wonder' by Tori Amos as an MP4 file- on youtube . It begins 'We three Kings......' The link is included. It includes a link to a most beautiful and fresh reading of TS Elliot's 'The Magi'. Link included. Reviewed as: 'This is the best narration of the journey of the Magi that I have ever heard! Beautifully paced, exactly right. I had seen a great narration of TS Eliot's poem on TV some years ago done by Timothy West, and was looking for it on You Tube when I came across Tim Martin's version which I think it is even better.Just love it.' A nice review would be similarly most welcome.

PP Assembly: New Year: New You

PP Assembly: New Year: New You

I searched the TES site today and found no assembly for the New Year so here goes! It is aimed at Secondary school children but could easily be adapted! For the Intro here is some background on where the name of the month January comes from: In ancient Roman religion and myth, Janus (/ˈdʒeɪnəs/; Latin: Ianus, pronounced [ˈjaː.nus]) is the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, doorways, passages, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past. It is conventionally thought that the month of January is named for Janus (Ianuarius),[ but according to ancient Roman farmers' almanacs Juno was the tutelary deity of the month Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark the peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and in his association with Portunus, a similar harbor and gateway god, he was concerned with travelling, trading and shipping You could use ABBA- Happy New Year but that would depend on whether you've already see Mamma Mia 20 times! The mini bios are on You Tube. The specific links are included Any way whatever you do, I hope 2018 is a good year for you! Any problems please email me.
