We are currently having virtual assemblies using Microsoft Teams. On a Monday we have a whole school assembly focused around an event or current issue. This term our themes have been:
St George's Day
Our Environment - Litter
School Council Assembly
World Refugee Day
History of the NHS (linked to NHS Anniversary)
On a Friday we have an Achievement Assembly to celebrate achievements that week. Awards given out on a Friday include:
Learner of the Week
Accelerated Reader Awards
Doodle Maths Awards
On a Tuesday and Thursday we have our key stage assemblies. These are based around personal development and learning behaviours. This half term we have been focusing on the series of books Little People, Big Dreams. KS1 have learned about Earth Heroes - Greta Thunberg, David Attenborough and Jane Goodall and writers Hans Christian Anderson and Astrid Lindgren. KS2 have been focusing on activists - Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg, Emmeline Pankhurst and Mahatma Gandhi.
Last half term our Reception and KS1 children focused on our Learning Monsters and our KS2 children had a series of assemblies based around Silence is Not An Option by Stuart Lawrence.
We link our assemblies to books wherever possible and below are the books we used for our Learning Monsters focus.
Silence is Not an Option by Stuart Lawrence
Our KS2 assemblies have been based around this great book and you can view the powerpoints from these assemblies below. The assemblies link directly to the chapters in the book of the same title.
