A key aspect of our SMSC provision at Rosedale are our Talk Time Assemblies. On a Monday we have a whole school assembly where the theme for the week is introduced and some discussion is had around that theme. On a Tuesday we have a key stage assembly where we are given more opportunities to discuss the topic and develop our oracy skills whilst learning more about our theme. On a Wednesday we have assembly with our own class so that our discussion can be even more focused.

Martin Luther King
In assembly we've been learning about Martin Luther King. We've been thinking about our school value "We show bravery in everything we do" and how Martin Luther King was brave in standing up for what he believed in.
We linked it to our theme of anti-bullying and talked about how we should stand up for what we know is wrong. If we see someone bullying or being unkind we should tell them that it is wrong and tell a teacher.
In our Talk Time Assembly one of our themes was based around our value of being inclusive. We read the story of Elmer and talked about fitting in and how Elmer wanted to be the same as everyone else. As we carried on the theme through the week we thought about questions such as 'has there ever been a time where you've felt different and wanted to fit in?' and 'why is it good to be different?'
