Primary School Video Resources

During the 2020 lockdown for COVID-19, we’ve been working from our home studio on video assemblies for primary school age children. These have been designed specifically for schools to use however they wish: to download and show to the handful of children who may still be attending school, or to send links home to parents so that children can still feel connected with our 21 year old project of assemblies. Each assembly comes with learning targets in line with Intent, Implementation and Impact objectives.

You can also watch the videos below as a playlist all together via YouTube:
