Are your pupils starting to feel Zoomed-out of the online classroom? If so, Barnardo’s Big Assembly is here to help liven up lockdown learning.

Hosted by Barnardo’s President, Natasha Kaplinsky OBE, Barnardo’s Big Assembly is a free, online school assembly for children aged from 5 to 11-years-old. All you’ll need to do is press play, and your class can join the friendly Barnardo’s team on an action-packed adventure. (Psst… grown ups can join the fun too, but this could be the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy a well-deserved break.)

This fun-filled 30-minute assembly will help children learn more about:

  • Barnardo’s incredible history - from the 1800s till now.
  • How Barnardo’s are supporting children and their families through the Coronavirus crisis.
  • What to do if children need our help
  • How children can get involved and help other children.

We have also put together an incredible Big Assembly Activity Pack that children can complete once they’ve watched the assembly. Register now to get access to your amazing Activity Pack and the online school assembly video link.

If you and your little ones enjoy Barnardo’s Big Assembly, please donate to our Children in Crisis Appeal to support the most vulnerable children through these unsettling times.
