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.
- 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.
