Assemblies at BJCF

Assemblies take place on a weekly basis across our school. We have EYFS, KS1 and KS2 weekly assemblies as well as whole school assemblies on special occasions.  

During assemblies we give out a variety of educational certificates to congratulate children on their learning and progress within school as well as celebrate birthdays and Mazel Tovs.

Every assembly we celebrate success and achievements from out of school ( swimming and gymnastics) This promotes the British Value of Individual Liberty. 

We also give out certificates to children who have demonstrated strong values ( Rule of Law) 

We have recently introduced our weekly 'Compliments To...' segment to our assemblies during which staff members write a compliment for a different member of staff. This is very encouraging for both staff and pupils, reiterating the concept that we all contribute to our school community in our own way.

Some of the topics we have covered in our assemblies this year, include: 

 

Respect and Tolerance: We watched a Seasame Street video on what respect is and how it is important to respect everyone in and out of school. We discussed that you should show respect even if you disagree with a person.

Honesty: Mrs Jaysan and Miss Emerson played a game of noughts and crosses and Mrs Jaysan cheated. We discussed how the other person may have been feeling. The children then shared other ways of cheating and how it can impact on your learning.

Fairness:  We read the story of Little Red Hen and discussed how it was fair that because she did all the work that she should get all the bread. This lead into a discussion about how some things can be seen to be unfair such as book level colours. 

Responsibility:  We watched the story of Horton Who Hatches an Egg. This was followed up by a discussion ( and an activity which was done in class) about different ways that we are responsible for our own learning and belongings( Individual Liberty) . 

Odd Socks Day : We had an assembly about Down's Syndrome  - (Mutual Respect) 

Cooperation - ( BV Mutual Respect ) We learnt about how to respect each other, to be cooperative and collaborative and to be supportive. 

Diversity: Ronald the Rhino story about accepting differences and celebrating individuality​. Click the link here to download this e-book story as a PowerPoint: 'Ronald The Rhino'

Food Hygiene Week : Miss Emerson gave a demonstration on how to wash hands correctly/ incorrectly. 

Kindness : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wi0UWLeT9I

Courage: Year 2 shared ways that they have been courageous ( I WILL SEND PICS ASAP ) 

 

     

 

In our KS2 Friday assemblies we always start with a D'var Torah written and read by a pupil. We then move on to Certificates both for Kodesh and Secular, as well as any weekly Mazal Tov's, Birthday's and the class with the best attendance. Finally, we end with a song or story.
