Kings and Monkeys is a collection of stories for primary school assemblies, telling the tales of mice and giants, elephants and sculptors, kings and monkeys 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 first 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. On 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.
