Be nice - assembly

(0)
“Be nice” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To remind students to “Work hard. Be nice”. (My favourite saying) A previous assembly (“Growth mindset”-which I will also post on TES shortly) focused on the “Work hard” part so you improve your intelligence and talents. This assembly focuses on the “Be nice” part so that we may enjoy stronger friendships and other healthy relationships. This assembly is based on 3 stories. There are morals to each story that can be explored to encourage students to: be nice to others, treat others how you want to be treat, take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world, and don’t let others decide how you will act or feel. (This is a concept used in my Life coaching called TFAR – Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Results, and is explained to an appropriate depth in the notes within the PowerPoint on slide 6.) The assembly has 9 slides and no video clips, so no need to worry about your school internet letting you down! It will last 10-15minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The three stories to tell are wrote as a script in the notes at the bottom of the relevant slide. However, since the notes are not visible once you start the PowerPoint, for your convenience, I have also copied the stories onto slides 10, 11, 12 so you may print them off prior to the assembly to learn by heart, or, to read from during the assembly if you wish. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students.

ASSEMBLY - Anger management

ASSEMBLY - Anger management

(0)
Anger Management assembly Compiled by a pastoral leader: This PowerPoint presentation can be used as a year group/house assembly, or as part of a dinnertime/after school club etc. designed to increase the resilience of the students. The PowerPoint contains 32 slides and 7 videos, which are embedded. The videos are YouTube clips. Some clips are humourous, some are tongue-in-cheek, some are hard-hitting. All the slides and clips build on each other to inspire and motivate the students to reflect on their current behaviour during the concluding slides. This PowerPoint helps build a positive year-group identity, and delivers a message about anger that can be taken into the wider school community. Links to the YouTube clips are also provided to give the makers credit. (see notes and bibliography within the PowerPoint.) I have included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resources you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and in case the students want to watch them again at home. The PowerPoint can be modified to last between 15-20 minutes, or anything up to 25 minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The assembly can be followed up with discussions with individual students or classes/tutor groups formally or informally. Kind regards Matthew Obee

Be Optimistic (assembly)

(0)
“Be Optimistic” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To encourage students to: “Be Optimistic”, (by informing them of the benefits of having an optimistic outlook in life.) Increase your resilience. Take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world. The first half of the assembly is based on an optical illusion and how you don’t see something how it is you see it how you are. It’s not logical, it’s pyscho-logical. The second half of the assembly tells the story of a man with no arms and no legs and how he had a terribly depressed experience of life until he made the decision in his mind to be more optimistic and see the opportunity in every difficulty, as opposed to the difficulty in every opportunity! The assembly has 19 slides and 2 video clips. It will last 15-20minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. I have embedded the video clips and included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resouces you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and incase the students want to watch them again at home. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students, which is always the main aim of my assemblies.

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset Enrichment presentation This presentation has 56 slides and contains 14 videos, which are all embedded (EXCEPT THE VIDEO THAT EMBEDS ON SLIDE 55 AS IT MADE THE FILE TOO LARGE, EVEN AFTER COMPRESSING, SO THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN INCLUDED AS A SEPARATE FILE FOR YOU TO RE-EMBED) into the presentation and play full-screen automatically. AIMS Understand what a growth mindset is Understand the plasticity of the brain Encourage students to take ownership of their learning Develop R & I (Resourcefulness and Initiative) Understand and develop grit Push yourself beyond comfort zone to take on new challenges Learn to not fear mistakes, learn from them (Growth Mindset) This power point is suitable for delivery as part of a whole school CPD, department CPD, or, as part of enrichment week, delivered to a whole year group. The presentation lasts between 1 ½ -2 hours, depending on how familiar you are with the Growth Mindset and how much you elaborate on each slide. The presentation contains a section where the students are asked to draw a self-portrait using their current technique, then again under the expert tuition of a YouTube artist, so they can see the instant impact better techniques have. You can see me going over the PowerPoint on my YouTube channel “gcsephysicsexplained”: [Link][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMapEUiWYrs&t=24s&list=PLjs3KMU7zKeh6TQlEA7csA9knbtiCCAcH&index=3] I follow up the presentation by giving a questionnaire to the students (attached as a download). The presentation gets great feedback, mostly saying how inspired the students feel to take responsibility for their own learning, and how they wish someone had told them about the growth mindset and the plasticity of the brain earlier. Kind regards Matthew Obee
