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.
