Assemblies and collective worship at manor Farm Junior School:
At Manor Farm, our whole school assemblies are predominantly linked to the school values, British values, religious festivals or world events. We also use LYFTA, to provide thought provoking and meaningful additions to our assembly discussions. Assemblies will usually be led by a member of the Senior Leadership Team or a specialist teacher e.g. Music.
Our Celebration assemblies on a Friday afternoon recognise children who have been clearly demonstrating one of more of these values in their learning and interactions that week. The Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher will present these children with a certificate which notes the specific value and how they demonstrated it in school.
Our Monday afternoon assemblies are an opportunity to gather as a school and reflect on learning across school and other important themes, events and British Values. Some examples of themes, events and festivals that have been celebrated and reflected upon during these assemblies are:
- Remembrance day
- Black history Month
- Pride Month
- International Women's Day
- World Environment Day
- Refugee week
- National sports week
On a Wednesday afternoon, children participate in a whole school Singing Assembly where thy are exposed to music from a wide variety of cultures, eras and artists. This assembly is led by a member of our Health and Wellbeing team provides an exciting and enriching opportunity for children to engage with the school community.
