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 certificates to congratulate children on their learning and progress as well as celebrate birthdays and Mazel Tovs.

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 - for all adults and children in school and how by respecting someone it shows that you care and that they are important to you.

  • Honesty: we looked at the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and why it is important to be honest.

  • Responsibility: through the audio book "Horton who Hatches an Egg" the children discussed ways that they are responsible at home and in school. 

  • Cooperation- the children learned about how ants work together to move a piece of food. Children then discussed the importance of cooperation in class, at playtime and at home.
