Millbrook Primary School Assemblies
At Millbrook Primary School we have a number of different approaches to assemblies.
Examples of assemblies at Millbrook include:
- A weekly celebration assembly where pupils’ achievements in the classroom and out (such as in sports teams) are rewarded.
- An assembly based on materials from a charity or organisation
- A talk from a visiting speaker or performer, for example a sports personality, musician or author, or a representative of a charity like Childline.
- A series of assemblies focusing on a school values: truth, kindness, respect, etc.
- An assembly tied in with a nationwide event or awareness campaign, such as Anti-Bullying Week or World Book Day.
- Faith-based assemblies where pupils look at a passage from a holy book, often led by a local member of clergy.
- An assembly based on current affairs, such as climate change or food poverty.
- Assemblies to address an issue that is affecting pupils, such as bad behaviour at playtimes.
- A class assembly, where one class each week leads the assembly, usually showing what they’ve been learning, e.g. through showing work, drama, dance and music.
- Singing assemblies where children learn new songs, perhaps for performing in a school concert.
