Connection Detectives

Think Global primary assembly kit

KS1: ages 5-7KS2: ages 7-11PDFPowerpoint

The focus of this assembly is uncovering and raising awareness of interconnections between us and our school, and people and places all over the world. It aims to move beyond where things we use or food we eat come from, and talk about people and places, pointing out that we all have connections and links, and that we can draw on them to enrich our lives and experience. You could use it to explore your school links with other schools in the UK, Europe or the wider world.

The kit is made up of a PDF of teachers’ notes, plus a set of PowerPoint slides which can be used as it is or adapted according to the needs of the teacher and pupils. There are lots of ideas to explore, enough for follow-up activities and/or further assemblies on this issue.

This one of a series of Think Global primary assembly kits. The first in the series, Be Choosy About Your Food, is available to download as a free sample. Two others are available, price £7.50 each or £20 for all three: Respecting Rights, which looks at the issue of human rights and Waste Not, Want Not, which explores the issue of waste.
