Assemblies at Woodstone

Assemblies

At Woodstone, we meet together each day for reflection and celebration.

Children are invited to participate, but are expected to be quiet, still and
respectful at times of reflection during the assemblies. Our assemblies currently follow the following format:

Monday

The whole school meets together for the Headteacher assembly. The focus
for these is usually based on one of the school values, one of our super
powers for learning or a specific theme such as Easter, Harvest, Diwali etc
Each month we also have a representative from Ravenstone Church deliver
an assembly. These often take a look at stories from the Bible and may
include songs and prayers.

Tuesday

Again, the whole school meets together for the Deputy Headteacher
assembly. The focus for these is similar to the themes on a Monday.

Wednesday

On Wednesdays our teachers lead key stage assemblies. This enables us to
deliver age specific themes e.g. e safety, behaviour.

Thursday

On Thursdays we meet for our singing/hymn assembly. These are led by Mrs
Pimperton and a member of our own staff. We sing new and traditional
songs/hymns.

Friday

Our Friday assembly is also known as our Golden Book assembly. It includes
the presentation of ‘Superpowers for Learning’ certificates. The Golden Book
is a special book kept by each teacher, in which they write down anybody
who has demonstrated extra special work, effort or behaviour. These children
share their accomplishments with the school and are awarded a certificate in
the assembly.

Parents are sometimes invited to join us for these assemblies, which take
place from 9.00am. Keep an eye on the calendar on the website for dates for
each class.
