Taking Over the Mall Assembly

Written on: Wednesday 20 December 2017

We had a special Monday assembly where ten Year 5 children shared their Mall experience with the rest of the school. The children did a Take Over Day there in October. They prepared the content of the assembly and PowerPoint by themselves (with a little help from Miss Maltwood) and dedicated their lunchtimes to agree on the content and wording. They got so carried away they even wrote a Rap! It was great!

The children shared their experiences of the day with a tour of the Mall, their quiz and poster competition. The highlight of the day (apart from their lunch) was the Budget Challenge. The video clips showed how much the children enjoyed this. The YouTube clip of the children making a film with roving reporters was fantastic and the children looked so professional! To top the assembly off the children finished with a rap. Here is the video, (words are just below).
