Ugly Bugs & Apple Trees: 12 ready-to-use assemblies for primary school
Following the hugely successful Kings and Monkeys , Ugly Bugs and Apple Trees is another collection of stories for primary school assemblies, telling the tales of kings and farmers, tailors and apple trees, brothers and neigh­bours, and many more besides.
The tales are funny, poignant and thought-provoking. Each story is followed by a concluding piece which explores the theme and provides food for thought for those moments of reflection in assembly. The theme is explored in general terms and then with a Christian emphasis, so that those leading the assembly may choose the most appro­priate for their situation.
The stories are equally useful as a valuable PSHME (Personal, Social, Health and Moral Education) resource. Each story can be used as a starting point to help consider a particular issue. In addition, there is a selection of questions at the end of each story to aid or prompt discussion.
However you choose to use this book, it will provide an accessible, fun and stress-free resource for the busy teacher.
