Primary Assemblies for Christian Festivals and Seasons. KS 1-2

Primary Assemblies for Christian Festivals and Seasons.
The aim of this book is to make it as easy as possible to present creative and satisfying assemblies for primary-age children. The book follows the pattern of the festivals and seasons of the Christian Year, while being divided into autumn, spring and summer for easy reference to the school terms. At the heart of each assembly is a story that can be used individually or with others to build up a theme throughout a season.
Suitable for Key Stage 1-2

The Year in Colour: Rachel Nicholls Review by Jill Biddle
Star Rating
I have been using this book as a welcome addition to our resources for teaching through the liturgical year in a Church children's Group. I find the meditative style of story-telling very effective in engaging children of a broad age range and producing interesting and thoughtful responses in the "Moments to Wonder". These presentations do indeed, I think, offer a children's group leader the potential to "engage the hearts and minds" of young children. (Posted on 27/04/2010)
The year in Colour: Assemblies Review by Marguerite Roberts
Star Rating
I have been using these assemblies since the beginning of the school year, both in a church primary school and in a larger county primary school. In each case the whole age range is at the assembly and the schools each have a complete range of children socially and academically.

I have spent fourteen years taking daily assemblies as a head teacher (or overseeing others taking them!) and know the pressures that surround this short but important time in each day's programme. These assemblies are quick and simple to organise, and can be taken properly with minimal prep time. The stories captivate the children and provoke very thoughtful responses, and the prayer suggestions have a light touch with both relevance and sensitivity. There is a low key reference to the liturgical season with an interesting explanation which is never overly didactic. All the material is accessible but is theologically sound and presented in such a way that the children both listen and comment. (Posted on 27/04/2010)
