READ FIRST: Finding a suitable FREE Assembly

To find a suitable FREE assembly use one of these options:

  • On the Assemblies drop-down menu are sub-menus for Years 1-2, Years 3-6 and Years 7-11. These will show you all the available assemblies for the selected year groups (NB many of the assemblies for Years 1-6 are included in both primary categories because they are suitable for all these school years).
  • Towards the bottom of the side menu are clickable module categories for Assemblies. These will show you all the available assemblies in those categories (across all the year groups).
  • At the bottom of each assembly are clickable links. These will show you related assemblies and others in the same module category or year group.
  • As more people join us and support this site we will add more assemblies based on the latest films.

Superbook: Exploring resilience through the Easter story

This assembly material offers ways to explore building resilience, through considering three parts of the Easter story:

  • Being resilient when the task seems too much for us (Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane).
  • Being resilient when others let us down (the betrayal of Jesus by Judas).
  • Being resilient when all seems lost (the arrest of Jesus).

For each of these three parts we offer a video scene-setter from Superbook, plus active reflections to explore resilience in relation to that scene.  So there is enough material here for a series of three short assemblies in the build up to Easter, or one longer special assembly. This assembly material can lead-in to lessons (freely provided on SuperbookSchools.org), which are geared for KS1 and KS2, but can also be used stand-alone, adapted as appropriate for the age of the pupils.

Assembly Objective:

  • Through this assembly pupils will:
    • Be introduced to the biblical story of the betrayal and arrest of Jesus.
    • Think about how we build resilience as we face challenges in our lives.
    • Be introduced to Superbook (the adventures of Chris, Joy and Gizmo as they go back in time to the Bible era).
    • Leave the assembly wanting to find out more about the death and resurrection of Jesus and its connection to the big story of the Bible.
