Spring 2 - Respect

Assembly Plan



Mutual Respect


We discussed how we treat others how we’d like to be treated ourselves using key vocabulary linked to mutual respect including ‘tolerance’, ‘understanding’, ‘treat others well’, ‘dignity’, ‘loyal’, ‘listen’, and ‘equal’.

We also discussed:

  • When is it easy to show respect?
  • When is it harder to show respect?
  • What do you need to do to show respect?
  • What is self-respect? 
  • Do you have to earn respect? And if so, how do you earn it?

We then reflected on how we could show respect today.


Musician of the Month

Hinduism - Holi


Holi celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love, new beginnings and happiness. The festival also celebrates the beginning of a good spring harvest season.


We reflected on the people we love and the things that make you happy. We discussed how sometimes people can be unkind to us, like in the story of Holika and Prahlad, but the festival of Holi celebrates love and good triumphing over bad.  It shows us that new beginnings are possible.


We thought about a new beginning we’d like to make and how we could make it happen.

Christianity - Easter


We remembered why Christians celebrate Easter - because of Jesus’ death, the resurrection and the ascension to heaven.


We discussed that although Jesus was very popular with many people, the authorities felt threatened by his teachings and crucified him, the most painful form of Roman execution. Christians call this day is ‘Good’ Friday because they believe that this was part of God’s plan to rescue humankind.


Jesus rose from death three days later on Easter Day. Mary Magdalene was the first to see the risen Jesus and he appeared to many more of his followers during the days before his ascension into heaven, about 40 days after Easter.


We watched and listened to some clips and discussed these to help us understand.
