Teaching children about peace and peaceful strategies, learning to handle conflict creatively, tackling injustice and racial prejudice, is imperative and relevant for today's children. Packed with topical ideas for the primary school teacher, this book offers material for 40+ primary assemblies, easy to use in an assembly or for preparation.

A great resource to dip into for one-off assemblies or follow as a programme of themed assemblies for a term, it is helpfully split into topic areas on peace which include:

  • Cooperation
  • Children’s writing
  • Places and challenges
  • Assembly plays
  • Environment
  • Stories.

Each assembly starts with a drama, story or interactive activity, followed by a prayer and ‘reflection’ and a hymn or a song. There are suggestions for questions and ideas for developing the theme which include using masks and puppets, as well as stories from six major world religions: Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.

The book will be invaluable to headteachers, deputy headteachers, primary schools teacher or any trainee teacher who is looking for a collection of assembly ideas that promote peace, tolerance and understanding in the widest possible context and in a variety of different ways.
