Assemblies KS1 and KS2 - New videos and frameworks

The most recent addition to the Assembly pages on BBC Teach is a collection of six stories from the Bible - each told with a humorous twist and adopting formats that pupils will be familiar with.

The story of 'Samson and Delilah' is reimagined as a superhero blockbuster; the story of 'Jesus Feeds the 5000' becomes a TV cookery contest; in 'The 10 Commandments' Moses vlogs to his social media channel; the story of 'Esther and Mordecai' becomes a hot-headed reality TV show.

While the tone is humorous the key events depicted are faithful to the original stories from scripture - for example, Samson really was 'a judge' (of kinds) and Moses really did return from Mount Sinai with not just 10 Commandments but another 603 more.

Assembly plans

Each of the stories forms part of an assembly framework exploring it in relation to important universal themes - for example, courage, forgiveness, acceptance. There are suggestions for appropriate songs and opportunities to include a time for reflection if desired. And each framework has a handy pdf download summarising how to deliver the assembly with links to the content.
