During a Tuesday assembly, Teachers will focus their assembly on one of the key concepts linked to 'Preparing for life in Modern Britain'. These include democracy and the law, tolerance of the faith and beliefs of others, individual liberty and mutual respect.
During a Wednesday assembly the Senior Leadership Team will discuss and develop the Learning Value for that half term through stories, role play and real life situations. These will support the content of weekly PSHE sessions and help ensure the children have a detailed understanding of the Learning Value at their level and in a varied context.
During Key Stage 2 assembly, children will record the content and context of the assembly in a sketchbook which is located on the Learning Values Display in the Key Stage 2 hall. This supports the sketchbooks which we use in classrooms to collect evidence of PSHE, the Learning Values and to show how we have supported our children at Southglade with learning about 'Preparing for life in Modern Britain'.
Above is our assembly overview, which contains questions and content linked to our Learning Values and Preparing for Life in Modern Britain. However, not only do we want to ensure we have covered all areas with our children through this pre-planned and extensive overview, we also want to ensure we are keeping up to date with current issues in the media and the world. We therefore use a resource called Picture News to support with developing PSHE planning and assemblies which develops, extends and questions children's curiosity and thinking about current situations or news. This ensures our children's learning is accurate and up to date, as well as supporting them with any queries or questions they may have . We use this tool to aid discussion, debate and to support our children with any concerns or queries they may have.
