INTRODUCTION TO ASSEMBLIES


The materials contained within this section are primarily designed for use in Assemblies. It should, however, be noted, that they may also be used in different contexts. They would also, for instance, be suitable for use in Citizenship, PSHE and History classes, potentially as introductory methods for further in depth considerations of the matters being raised.

It may be that teachers would wish to amend the presentations according to the particular needs of the learners for whom they have responsibility.

Some of the PowerPoint Presentations that accompany the assemblies contain presenter notes; these notes are not intended to be readout they are there to provide context and information for potential follow up rather than being seen as the text for the presentation or address itself.

Some of the assemblies include optional activity that teachers may decide at this point are too challenging for their learners particularly if the learners are unused to or even uncomfortable about operating or performing in large groups.

Some teachers may feel that that assembly groups are not conducive to some of the activity indicated. For instance within the assembly PowerPoint (slide 13) for 15 May, International Conscientious Objectors’ Day there is an exercise related to the concept of heroism but it may be that this exercise could be conducted separately.

The aim of these assemblies is to raise pupils’ awareness of issues and ideas that perhaps are not being “tackled” elsewhere in the curriculum and are intended to enable pupils to apply some critical thinking to their currently accepted notions of why things are as they are!
