School assemblies are about to get much cooler
Teachers lives are being made a little easier with the arrival of new resources for assemblies and RE lessons.
Ethos Education is offering free resources to inspire pupils, while helping schools fulfil legal requirement for collective worship and teaching the syllabus.
Both primary and secondary aged children are catered for, with content based on recent film releases.
These films form the starting point for teachers to explore moral and ethical issues with their students.
Examples of RE lessons the charity has created include using Hunger Games to teach about the morality of wartime, Star Wars to examine the truth of myths and the Avengers to examine whether limits should be placed on genetic engineering.
For younger children, The Good Dinosaur is the base for several assemblies on families and overcoming fear, while Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is used to examine how bullies can become friends.
Ethos Education is led by Nick and Carol Pollard who have 35 years' experience of providing educational resources for schools, churches and other community groups.
The free resources for schools are funded through donations to Nick and Carol Pollard Ministries.
