To celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday 18th June, our Year 1 children led a Father’s Day assembly to celebrate all father’s and father figures, and to thank them for all that they do.
Over the past week our Year 1 children have been thinking about their dads or other male role models that they have in their lives like grandads, brothers and uncles. In lessons they have been working diligently to paint pictures of these people, and they have written about why they love them. In their music lessons they have been learning 2 songs, accompanied with actions.
On Friday afternoon, fathers and father-figures were welcomed into Pre-prep for refreshments and snacks, chatting with fellow parents before sitting down to watch as the assembly began. In the assembly, each Year 1 class performed a poem about fathers and father figures, which they have rehearsed over the past week. Following on from this there was a short film that was played for parents and carers, which was of the Year 1 children listing all the things they love about their father/father figure.
They then performed the two songs that they have been rehearsing over the past week, the lyrics of which detail their love and gratefulness for their parental figures. At the end of the assembly, the children presented their grown ups with their paintings, a card that they have made and a book mark, because they know that like themselves, their parents love reading.
