Truthfulness

Join Tabz (David Taberner), Hettie and Emily as they bring us another video assembly / collective worship on the theme of Truthfulness. 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 speaking believing truthful encouragements about ourselves.
  • To see an impact in the way we share truthful encouragements with others we know.

Session plan:

Intro: Tabz welcomes Hettie and Emily who introduce the assembly.

Game: True or false quiz | The children decide whether a statement is true or false.

Story: ‘Not a ghost story’ from Bob Hartman’s Rhyming Bible, based upon Jesus appearing to His disciples found in Luke 24:36-49.

Game: Two truths and a lie | Hettie, Tabz and Emily give three statements each and pupils decide which one statement is a lie.

Thought: Reflections on what is true and that when we know positive truths about people, we should share it with them.

Challenge: Tell someone the positive truths that you believe about them.

SMSC Impact:

ONE. SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

This session reflects upon the events following the Christian celebration of Easter when Jesus appeared to His followers and for the pupils to contemplate what they believe to be truth.

TWO. MORAL DEVELOPMENT

Pupils are encouraged to consider what is true and what is false and that when they are aware of positive truths about others, they should share them with them.

THREE. SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT

The children are invited to reflect personally and discuss with others what they believe to be true and to tell others the great truths about 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.
