Once a month, a single grade is in charge of the Junior School assembly and guess who was up first this year? Grade 3! We chose to do our presentation on our Biblical studies unit The Bible: A Book Like No Other which we combined with our unit of study on Who We Are.
Our theme song for the last unit was Remind Me Who I Am by Jason Gray. I hadn't heard it before coming to SPH but it's an upbeat song with an uplifting message. The first video below is the official music video for the song.
We decided to do close our assembly by creating our own interpretation of the video as it played alongside the stage. Like in the video, the students also had cards, depecting negative emotions that we commonly fall into the trap of.
Towards the end of the song, the students flipped their cards over and placed them together on a large board to depict the same message as the song: we are all beloved.
Meanwhile, on the second screen in the gym, I had been able to photograph the students who were not otherwise participating in the assembly presenation, depicting themselves as beloved, across campus in different areas that students are involved in daily. My video is below. The pictures come in towards the end of the video but if you're running short on time, I've uploaded my favorites down below!
It was great getting the opportunity to work with such enthusiastic students to make a presentation that everyone from Kindy to Grade 6 was able to relate to. I was very impressed with their hard work!
