Poetry Class Assembly Script
An assembly script that my year 4 class performed on poetry. The whole script is written in rhyming poetry. It covers onomatopoeia, rhyme and alliteration. We also included some poetry the children had written in class to form part of the assembly. The performance lasted about 15 minutes in total but could be extended or shortened by including more or less of their own poetry.

Water Assembly
These resources are for a KS2 class assembly on the theme of water. The resources include a powerpoint and assembly script. The assembly script contains a short play, poetry written by the children, a brainiac & Who wants to be a Millionaire sketch. It is cross-curricular and particularly links to Science, Literacy and Geography. The year group is 5 but I think it could be adapted for other KS2 year groups.

UK Guidelines on Collective Worship 
http://www.dfes.gov.uk/a-z/COLLECTIVE_WORSHIP.html 
UK Guidelines on Collective Worship(br> All maintained schools should provide for collective worship and religious education for their pupils. The precise nature of the collective worship and religious education at a foundation or voluntary school will depend on the religious character of the school. Whether a foundation or voluntary school has a religious character and the particular religion or religious denomination concerned is set out in The Designation of Schools Having a Religious Character (England) Order 1999 (SI 1999 No. 2432). There are no foundation special schools which have a religious character.

The Assemblies Website 
http://www.assemblies.org.uk/ 
The Assemblies Website aims to provide high-quality, instant access primary school assemblies for teachers and others leading collective worship. It exists to promote good practice and to help schools comply with the legal requirements for collective worship. The assemblies it offers are Christian in outlook, but the site aims to provide a resource for use in a wide range of schools, and the assemblies it offers are designed for use with all children regardless of their faith or cultural background.
The site provides two assemblies a week, with standing assemblies for special events, positive and negative, that can hit any school, and rapid response assemblies will also be provided when world events touch children’s lives.
Each assembly offers all you need, and can be used straight from the site with a minimum of preparation. If you prefer, you can use them as a starting point and add your own elements, and there is scope for curriculum-linked preparation by groups of children. Assemblies are planned to be used by the whole school, but where appropriate there will be adaptations available to target the assembly for Key Stage 1 or 2.
