We organise our assemblies so that children get a range of opportunities to explore various themes and ideas that are relevant to their lives. In designing assemblies we promote and explore:
We have regular visitors to deliver our assemblies:
We also have occasional visitors:
Composer of the Week
To enhance our music curriculum and broaden children's exposure to a range of musical genres, we have a composer of the week. This music is played on entry to assembly.
We hold weekly singing assemblies where the children learn a range of hymns and non-religious songs to promote a sense of belonging and togetherness. This gives further opportunities to explore both school and Christian values through song.
We have regular reading assemblies which aim to provide another opportunity for children to be exposed to range of text types and authors and simply enjoy great books!
Subject Specific Assemblies
Subject Leaders often deliver assemblies linked specifically to their curriculum area as an opportunity to value and promote each subject for it's own worth.
We hold weekly celebration assemblies where each teacher will have selected 2 children to award with a certificate for an element of their learning that week that has really shone. This is often linked to our school values. We celebrate the children's birthdays and also award the Attendance Cup to the class with the highest attendance for the week. There is a real sense of pride in these assemblies.
