Join Tabz (David Taberner), Hettie and Emily as they bring us another video assembly / collective worship on the theme of honouring others. Safe Space is a project of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, creating a safe space to explore the big issues of life and faith in local schools.
Learning Objectives and curricular links:
- To widen understanding of the Christian Easter Celebration and its origins.
- To implement widened understanding through remembering those that we respect, honour and celebrate in our own lives.
- To reflect on how much we need to remember those we appreciate and why, and letting that impact our actions towards them.
Intro: Tabz welcomes Hettie and Emily who introduce the assembly.
Game: ‘Human Bop it’ | Children use the actions given and follow the instructions to try and keep up as bop it gets faster.
Story: ‘The clip clop beat’ from Bob Hartman’s Rhyming Bible , based upon Jesus’ triumphal entry from Matthew 21:1-11.
Game: ‘The coat counter’ | Participants guess how many coats Tabz is wearing.
Thought: Reflections on who we appreciate and why, and letting that impact our actions towards them.
Challenge: Decide upon something you will do to celebrate those who you appreciate.
ONE. SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
This session reflects upon the events leading up to the Christian celebration of Easter and how Jesus was honoured by others.
TWO. MORAL DEVELOPMENT
Pupils are encouraged to consider those around them, who they appreciate and how they can show that they appreciate them.
THREE. SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
The children are invited to reflect personally and discuss with others how their actions affect themselves and those around them.
FOUR. CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
Our country, although historically a Christian nation, is now home to many people of differing cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. In these sessions, pupils have the opportunity to celebrate and reflect respectfully on our similarities, differences and the role faith plays in the lives of people around the world.
