Assembly Evaluation PMI

Below are our thoughts about what is good and what could be improved about our school assemblies. We will be giving children more and more say in how the school functions and this is one example of this. The thinking behind this is that the more say the students hav - the more ownership they will have of their learning.

If parents have comments we'd love to hear from you, just click the comment link and make them.

We are constantly repeating the same songs over again.
Sitting down and having to listen.
My bottom gets sore at assembly
I hate having to wait for people to stop talking between assembly.
My legs hurt after having to set so long.
Sometimes the assembly is too long
Always on a Monday-Why?
Everything is the same nothing changes.
Things are said that don't need to be said e.g we know we have to wear hats.
You get pins and needles.
Its not exciting it is boring.
It takes the kids to long to find the song.
We never move other than stand up or when we sit down.
All the juniors get to go first
The teachers get to talk but we don't.

Year 5 and 6 should be able to help out with the assembly to.
We should have actions to our song so we can get up and dance
We should have it on different days
Have more kids providing entertainment each week a different class should organise the assembly.
Mini snacks like popcorn
All the boys sit on one side and all girls on the other
Could we have an isle so it would make it easier to go and get certificates
We could sit with juniors and do activities together
Have seats to sit on
Jump jam in assembly
5 minute talking time in assembly
Fun facts could be shared
Birthday certification and sing happy birthday also have birthday badges.
