This theme about Changes, tackles the issue of change and aims to equip children with an understanding of different types of change, positive and negative, as well as common human responses to it.
The theme seeks to develop children’s ability to understand and manage the feelings associated with change. It aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: motivation, social skills and managing feelings.
This Changes theme builds on the work schools do on developing children’s understanding of their own feeling and those of others. It details specific Learning Outcomes for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2.
There are guidance notes for teachers for the video and other materials materials.
The music covers a wide range of styles from early Classical, via popular song to modern music written to accompany films or adverts.
These are aimed at children from Reception to Year 6 with some focused on a narrower age group. The assembly scripts for Changes can be used in their entirety or adapted according to individual school use.
Then Mirror Assemblies
could be your solution.
