Assemblies for Schools

I’ve put together a series of short (5-10 minute) assemblies for schools to use. They would work well as part of Key Stage 2 and 3 assemblies or for use in classes at the end of the day. Each one focusses on a different character muscle, tied in loosely with the Routes to Resilience scheme. In each video, I discuss how that quality is key to writing, both in school and in the wider world. Each video includes sections where it should be paused to allow discussion within the class or assembly before proceeding.

If these are useful to you, please let me know via email or Twitter and I will continue to produce more. I’ve added low-resolution versions that can be downloaded for schools with poor internet connections.
