I thought it might be useful to start a thread about our best assemblies to help give us a bank of ideas. I'm sure I'm not alone in hating doing assemblies and this might help us feel less stressed about it! I think the best one I ever saw was an assembly about Haiti. My deputy head showed the most moving slideshow of Haiti images to a very inspiring song (I can't for the life of me remember the song name but it was really moving). She then read a story about a couple who had had the nearest miss when they altered their daily plans and where they should have been would have almost certainly killed them. It was so moving that there were several kids and adults crying and that's something I have never seen from an assembly before. It really made the children realise how lucky they were. Does anyone want to add an assembly? It would be great if you do.
