|Being a Church of England School, a typical day always started after registration with prayers and/or hymns. Once a week the vicar would take an assembly. Catholic children were excused attendance at assemblies.|
|By the 1950s, the daily morning assemblies would also include a Bible reading and listening to a piece of classical music from a record player as well as prayers and hymns.|
|Assemblies were quite formal and everyone would file into the School hall and sit cross-legged on the floor.|
|How do your school assemblies differ from those described?
