Assembly & SMSC

SLN’s Assembly and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development pack suggests nine individual and carefully planned ideas for assembly and, or, collective worship that supports SMSC development.

Half the Room

This assembly explores who we are by using the activity of the same name (click here for link) as a basis for a whole school/year group assembly. It is a method that lends itself to adaptation for other uses too..

 Who’s Who

This assembly uses the concept of a quiz where children look at images of their staff and listen to interesting things about them. The challenge is to match the information they hear with the image they see.What does this tell us about identity? What lessons or values can we take from this experience?
