This assembly helps children think about what they love about the world. It uses the fantastic ideas and resources from the #Showthelove campaign which is supported by over 100 charities including the Woodland Trust, National Trust as well as many faith and community groups.Finding similarities about the things we care about is a powerful way of building connections between children in linking classes and across a school.
The Holocaust Memorial Trust theme for 2020 is Stand Together. Their resources include an excellent video clip called Your voice is amazing. We have used this video to help pupils in an assembly explore how they can use their voice to support and stand with others and we have combined it with 3 stories taken from the HMD website of people who used their voice to Stand Together with others Lime Balla, Fefik Veseli and Nicholas Winterton. The assembly is aimed at UKS2 pupils.
