Think About (Assembly)

Think About... by Ruth Kenward - 5 to 7 yrs - KS1  (1m 34s)



Theme  -  Choosing a good way to live 

Story  -  by Ruth Kenward  (approx 6 mins)

George was a boy who liked to please himself. He did what he liked, and said what he liked. He didn’t really stop to think about what he did or said, and how it might affect the other people around him.

Take Monday, for example. As usual, George didn’t feel like getting out of bed. ‘George!’ his mum called. ‘It’s time to get up!’  But George just snuggled further under the covers.  
‘I’ll get up in a minute…’ he thought, and he turned over and went back to sleep.

The next thing George knew, his brother Adam was opening the bedroom door, then shouting down to their mother: ‘Mum! George is still asleep!’ Then came the sound of feet thundering up the stairs.

Their mother pushed past Adam and pulled back the bedding.
‘Get out of that bed!’ she shouted.  ‘All right Mum, don’t panic!’ George called after her, rudely, as she rushed back downstairs with Adam behind her...


Song  -  by Ruth Kenward  

Everything we choose in life makes us who we are.  This appealing song manages to convey such a huge subject matter in very simple words. (Sample on the audio player above.)


Reflection Points  -  samples

1.  George was only thinking about himself. Who else should he have been thinking about?

2.  If George had thought before he was rude to his mum, why would the day have ended better?

3.  What advice would you give George to help prevent another day being like this?


This assembly is from 'Assemblies Alive KS1'. There is a parallel assembly for KS2 'the Books Of Life' with the same theme in 'Assemblies Alive KS2'.
