Last Minute Assembly - Your Plan
« on: January 10, 2016, 03:51:01 PM »
Have you ever been caught out by having to take a last minute Assembly?

What advice can you give others?

What would you put in your "Last Minute Assembly Pack"? A first aid pack for Assembly Leaders who have only a few minutes to come up with something useful.

Let us know here.

Then if you are ever faced with this situation you can log in here for some ideas.

I always have a usb drive with a few interesting videos on it and an Assembly story book in pdf format. I keep this usb drive on my keyring so that I don't have to look for it in an emergency. (When the Assembly leader for the day calls in sick at the last minute, for example.)

AssemblyTube have a free Assembly Story Book pdf in their downloads area for members. If has some really good stories with a moral message to each. You can quickly print out a story if you need a hard copy. I am sure Sara can supply the link to the story book if you cannot find it.

I have also used the Assembly EasyPlay gadget and found this useful but you can make a simplified version with your own USB stick.

I like the idea of an emergency pack. It probably needs to be tailored to each age group. I have also found the free story book worth having, and not just for emergencies - when you are logged in you see the downloads area in the top menu - if you are a guest or not logged in you cannot see it.

A generic video that is useful is Wonderful World by David Attenborough. Just do a search in the box at the top of this page.

One way of finding good assembly videos to download onto your emergency assembly USB stick would be to start with the previous Videos of the Day which are listed from the main menu above.

Another place to start would be using the assembly themes on the Assembly Finder on the left. There are 5 star video assemblies listed for each key stage.

If you are not sure how to download videos I am sure if you ask here you will get lots of advice on how to do this.

If you are looking for a complete primary assembly then several have been submitted by member "culdrum". They are excellent assemblies to use as they are, or to use as a starting point.
Just put culdrum in the search box and you will find them.

Another tip that I did not realise to begin with. If you click the "print" button below right, you can get a quick hard copy of what is written. Very useful for scripts on this site. Then you can annotate them. I guess if you click the print button now you can try it out with this post.
