A 10 minute assembly to show the young people the power of words and their effect on those around us.

Welcome the young people to today's assembly and introduce yourself and any team present.

Race (5 minutes)

Ask for two volunteers - ideally a boy and a girl. Explain that they are now going to have a race. One has to peel a banana whilst the other has to empty all of the toothpaste from the tube into a bowl. The first person to complete their task is the winner.

Explain that perhaps it wasn't a fair competition. It was perhaps too easy for the person with the banana. Ask them now to scoop the toothpaste back into the tube using the spoon and sew the banana back into it's skin (using the needle and thread!).

After a minute of fruitless effort call a halt to proceedings and thank the volunteers. Explain that the task was impossible and simply cannot be done. In the same way we cannot put words back into our mouths once we have said them.
