A fun-packed virtual assembly is being offered to all year 6 pupils in July: ” Google and Parent Zone’s Year 6 national assemblies are designed to bring school communities together across the UK – and remind children of the tips and tricks they need to be safer and more confident online. Year 6 pupils will learn the skills they need to prepare for secondary school — and have the chance to celebrate their graduation from primary school. They will take part in interactive quizzes, polls and learn lots of fun facts to help them get ready for the transition to their next school.” (Parent Zone)
“The leap from Year 6 to starting secondary school can be a big one. So, we’re excited to let you know about a new Year 6 national assembly that we’ve created as part of our Be Internet Legends programme in partnership with Google — designed to help pupils think about the digital knowledge and behaviours they will need when they move to their next school and start a new phase of their education.”(Parent Zone)
The virtual assembly will be 45 minutes long and on YouTube. It takes place on three different occasions: Wednesday 7th July at 11am, Tuesday 13th July at 9.30 and Thursday 15 July at 2pm.
The free, fun-packed virtual assembly will be interactive, packed with quizzes, polls and lots of interesting facts. It has been created to reinforce the online safety skills they’ve learned throughout their time at primary school and serve as a useful revision before they move on to secondary education as well as being a national event for them to take part in.
Teachers need to book now by filling out this short form and choosing one of the three dates. They will send the information that you need to set up the live stream and join in the interactive parts. Parents can also join the stream from home to watch it so that children out of school are not excluded.
Something new and different – it sounds like fun!
