6P’s Class Assembly: The Rosary and our History Topic- World War II
During our class assembly, we shared what we know about praying the Rosary. We explored each of the mysteries of the Rosary (the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries) further by creating freeze-frames of each story that is remembered during the Rosary.
We emphasised the importance of taking time to meditate and pray to God and identified that October, the month of the Rosary, is a good time to strengthen our relationship with God further. We know that through offering our prayers to Mary, our Mother, God will give us the strength that we need to face any challenges which we need to overcome.
We decided as a class to sing ‘As I Kneel Before You’ as this is a hymn which reminds us of God’s love and the importance of offering our prayers through Mary.
The second part of our assembly celebrated our learning during our History topic: World War II. We decided to focus on evacuation as we recognise that evacuation would have been something which could have affected us all if we were alive at the time of war. We worked together to create a role-play of a typical London family whose children were evacuated. We then shared a bit about our Power of Reading book, ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.’ We noted that WWII was a heart-breaking time as war tears families apart. We learned a famous wartime song by Vera Lynn, ‘We’ll Meet Again,’ which we sang for the audience-bringing many to tears!
Finally, we offered our prayers to God and remembered those who were, and are still, affected by war. As a class, we decided to sing Titanium as we know that God gives us the strength to be resilient and that with God’s love and strength we can never be defeated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our class assembly and we think the audience did too! It truly was a team effort!
6C’s Class Assembly –Laudato Si and Animal Welfare - 04/10/2019
Our assembly focused on Laudato Si (A letter written by pope Francis about caring for our “Common Home” also known as Earth) We worked together to share our ideas and helped plan the assembly with Mr. Cassidy. We wanted to make sure that we delivered this very important message are creatively as possible to make sure people understood that everyone can make a positive impact

We started off by explaining Pope Francis’’ letter and making sure that everyone knew that we as Christians today have a vital role to play when it comes to caring for our common home. We carried out some Freeze frames to help people gain a deeper understanding.
We as a class chose the song “How Great thou Art” as we felt it helped us to reflect on creation and all that God has done for us, and that we should respect and love the earth.

We welcomed everyone through prayer and songs, singing “Seek ye first” helping to have everyone in the right mind-set for prayer. Our assembly consisted of a skit, which the audience seemed to love. We created our own M&M’s Newsround and a M&M’s debate team to deal with the controversial topic – Zoo’s. We choose Andy Grammar – Don’t give up on me as our final song. We felt that the words in the song were relevant to the Earth and Animals asking us humans to take control and to not give up, that we all can make a difference and fix these problems before they become irreversible.
