Assembly Focus – Abstinence

Monday, 11 March 2019

Our assembly this week focused on Lent. The children learnt that Jesus spent 40 days in the desert reflecting on the sacrifice he was about to make and the temptations he resisted.

We talked about the idea that Christians  make sacrifices at this time of year but this doesn’t always have to be giving something up like chocolate – it can be other things.

We read the following poem:

Abstinence
Today I’ll give up grumbling and complaining,
Instead I’ll be thankful for all that I have.
Today I’ll quit worrying about the ‘if onlys’ and ‘what ifs’ of my life,
Instead I’ll trust that God knows and cares for even me.
Today I’ll stop criticizing all those around me,
Instead I’ll take a good, long look at my own faults.
Today I’ll refuse to use the words ‘I’m bored!’
Instead I’ll be grateful for a brain, and for education, and for every opportunity to learn.
Today I’ll give up speaking unkindly and negatively,
Instead I’ll make an effort to use positive words and to be an encourager.
Today I’ll abstain from my mobile phone, my computer, my DVD player and all e-mails,
Instead I’ll practise the art of talking to my family and my friends.

 We decided it would be much better if we did kind, compassionate and thoughtful things instead. We are all going to try hard to achieve this over the next 7 weeks.

Year 1 Assembly

Friday, 16 March 2018

Year 1 performed their first class assembly in front of a very big audience of proud parents and carers.

They all spoke well and gave us lots of information about their visit to the post office.

The children spent lots of time building and decorating their houses, its always a topic that the children really enjoy.

 

Thank you to all the family members that were able to attend, it always makes such a difference.

Year 5 Assembly

Monday, 5 March 2018

The assembly was scripted by class teacher Mr Trew and was all about Ancient Greece, the class topic for the term.

It featured a famous story from Ancient Greece once thought to be a myth, the battle of Troy, between the Trojans and the Athenians.  It was a war that went on for 10 years between King Menelaus (The Greeks) and King Priam (The Trojans) and somewhere into the mix – care of Mr Trew’s script Cristiano Ronaldo kept popping up.

There is evidence that Troy was a real place and that it was involved in wars…sadly some of it is lost beneath the waves!

Peace and Reconcilliation

Friday, 24 November 2017

Year 6 assembly today was enjoyed by all the lower school pupils. This term’s topic – WW2 has generated a variety of work that will feature later this afternoon for parents – songs, science and sculpture to name just a few.

 
Parents will have an amazing assembly to look forward to.

Road Safety Assembly

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

We had a very timely visit this morning, Kate from Warwickshire Road Safety came to our school assembly and presented very professionally some super advice for all our pupils to stay safe while crossing the road.

 

 

Some of the children were asked to put on some items to help reinforce the message

 

 

 

 

Think-Stop-Look-Listen and Hold hands.

Year 4 assembly, on stage in front of parents. The topic was about dragons. They spoke out well and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all the parents.

Year 5 WW1 Assembly

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

Year 5 produced a fantastic performance on their WW1 topic. It included singing, dancing, choral performance poetry and wonderful speaking and acting.


The assembly itself told the story of four boys (vastly underage) who signed up to fight for their country expecting an adventure but instead find themselves facing the terrors of the trenches.
“It really brought it home to you how ordinary boys were affected” said one of our grandparents.

“It was definitely one of the best assemblies I’ve seen” said one of our teachers.

Mrs Corbett worked hard to create a realistic feeling – she even managed to get her hands on some real WW1 stretchers to carry the children.
