Ideas for my first ever assembly!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by 0612692, Jun 9, 2011.

  1. Hi, I'm and NQT and have got my first ever assembly next Thursday. It is fair to say that I'm pretty nervous especially as the auidience is 200 year 5s and 6s who I do not teach.
    The theme is relationships but this theme has been running a while so is pretty overdone. I would like to do something about how to make new friends. I'm hoping this will relate to the year sixes moving to their new schools and also the year fives who are swapping their classes around for next year.
    Any exciting ideas I could use?
    I watched my fellow NQT take her first assembly this morning and they are a tough crowd. Well behaved but not willing to put their hands up at all.
    Many thanks in advance.

    What about using the theme Silver and Gold? Treasure!
    There is a song in Music Express Year 6 called Silver and Gold - Make new friends but keep the old. Do the children know this song and do you have the Music Express series in school? If you have the CD you could always play the song rather than them sing it. It is also in the book Sing A Silver Lining.
    There's an assembly idea on the theme of old and new friends here, but you could possibly extend it with ideas from the song:

    If you're worried about children not responding you could always ask the y5/6 teachers if there's a trusted child that could have something new, (if you take this idea) so that you are ensured a response!
    These are the lyrics to the song:

    This is a Scout song on the same theme, but different words:
