There undoubtedly are some teachers who can create ceaselessly varied and engaging assemblies which are also relevant to the moment, and to such colleagues all I can say is, “I salute you.”
And I say this because I know just how hard it is to undertake every other duty one has in the school, and keep coming up with assemblies that really will inspire the children and develop their thinking.
It was as a result of this thought that some of us began to build a collection of assembly stories that could meet the social and emotional needs of children.
Stories that would encourage a whole school focus on the values we wished to present. In fact what we produced, and have been developing ever since, is a set of over 350 assemblies which are instantly available, and fully scripted, with new assemblies being added every month.
Then we divided the assemblies into 12 categories along with an index which allows you to choose your assembly by topics as diverse as community, citizenship, saints’ days, black history, social and emotional stories, and so on with each assembly having its own supporting presentation material and a set of ready-to-use key word cards.
The result is The Assembly Box.
You can read a full example of one of our assemblies by following this link. Additionally you can see the complete list of the 12 main categories and from there you can go into each category and see the details of all the assemblies on offer.
All the details are available at http://www.assemblybox.co.uk where you can also order online. The complete set of all of our assemblies costs £149 (+ VAT). If you have any questions please email email@example.com
