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? ** (1) Music suggestions : 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. **(2) Video: You Tube: Top 10 romantic gestures (3) Bible reading (4) Final thought (5) Call to action ** 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?

Materialism still unfortunately very much an evil of our society today. Personally I think every school year should include an assembly on this topic. As of January 2018 it is the only TES assembly on Materialism! **It covers the following; ** 1. What is materialism? 2. What is the problem with materialism? 3. What is the solution to materialism? It is aimed at Secondary school children but can be adapted to Primary children or used in an RE lesson. It includes the following: Suggested songs: the Flying Lizards 1979:Money That’s What I want Others could be Madonna’s ‘Material Girl’ , Spice Girls ‘Tell You What I Want’ or Lennon’s ‘Imagine’. Video: an extract from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ (Clean) to show the destructive powers of money on character. A Bible reading Prayer Current research stats: an extract from the ‘Guardian’ of last year-2017. This is the beginning of a realisation that: if E= money then we don’t get to M C squared =happiness. Final thought Call to action Clearly you can easily adapt this assembly to the post-Christmas period or your own requirements; e.g. stealing/lying. Tell me what you use and why you chose this topic for an assembly. Any problems or queries please email me directly. Positive feedback telling me how you used or adapted this assembly would be really nice!

This includes: Music: Star of Wonder’ by Tori Amos as an MP4 file- on youtube . It begins ‘We three Kings…’ The link is included. Video- see below Bible reading Prayer Final thought Call to action 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

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! WHAT ARE OUR GOALS? WILL WE ACHIEVE THEM? WILL WE BE A BETTER PERSON IN 2018/9 IF WE ACHIEVE THEM? It includes: Music: You could use ABBA- Happy New Year but that would depend on whether you’ve already see Mamma Mia 20 times! Video: The mini bios are on You Tube. The specific links are included incl Bill Gates bio. Bible reading Prayer- by Billy Graham Final thought Call to action Research for talk- below and current research on people’s top goals today -on slides **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 ** ** Any way whatever you do, I hope 2018/9 is a good year for you! Any problems please email me. Some nice feedback if time permits!

According to Hunt: “I painted the picture with what I thought, unworthy though I was, to be by Divine command, and not simply as a good Subject.”[1] The door in the painting has no handle, and can therefore be opened only from the inside, representing "the obstinately shut mind& Please leave me a review or feedback telling me how you used this resource and why

PP Assembly on Judging Others

PP Assembly on Judging Others

‘Judge not according to appearance’ JOHN 7 V24 This is an assembly that was designed for Secondary pupils but would also suit older primary students. For music I recommend Republica: ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ and a few other more recent numbers- see PP I have also included links to relevant stories and short films that you can include to make it a longer assembly. I think it is a great confidence booster and you could easily link the Greek masks on the title slide with the selfie craze! It is the perfect antidote to the selfie craze! It is also the perfect antidote to abuses of social media websites and trolling! Please leave me some feedback as to how you use it!
