Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly Key Stage I and/or II - Simple language but broad scope of information - script easily adapted to any age group. Although written for Key Stage I children (language kept very simple) this class play or assembly could be used at Key Stage II due to the broad scope of information. Cast of 30 - easily adjustable up or down Duration - around 10 - 15 minutes Content · The first part of the assembly deals with division between nobility and servants – their different life styles and jobs they did. · The second part looks at castle features – how they were built and how they changed over time. · The third part looks at weapons of battle – how they were used to attack and defend a castle. As previously mentioned, this assembly could be used by either of the two key stages – either simplified for younger children or elaborated upon for the older students. It is, I hope, a fairly versatile script which can be adapted for any age group. Also available off www.plays-r-ussell.com is The Battle of Hastings 1066. This assembly is for Key Stage II and goes into a lot more historical background including the events depicted and characters displayed on the Bayeux Tapestry. Sample Text (Enter Minstrel, Jester and Juggler) Minstrel: Who do you think played music at those banquets? Jester: Who do you think kept them laughing? Juggler: And who do you think entertained them? (Enter Soldiers 1 & 2) Soldier 1: And most important of all, who do you think kept them safe? Us soldiers, of course! Soldier 2: Protecting everyone against the enemy! Gong Farmer: Well. Almost most important of all! Narrator: Oh really? You think you’re more important than them? (Gong Farmer nods) Soldier 1: How? Gong Farmer: You really want to know? Soldier 2: Indeed, we do! Gong Farmer: I had to get rid of … Soldier 1: (Holding nose) Oh, now I get it! Soldier 2: You got rid of what came out of the garderobes? Narrator: The what? Soldier 2: Garderobes! Soldier 1: That’s castle toilets to you! Narrator: Ugh! Poor man! What a job! Gong Farmer: Well, someone had to do it! Narrator: Oh dear! I can see life wasn’t quite so glamourous for you folk! (All shake their heads in agreement) (Exit Gong Farmer, Servant, Cook, Hunter, Cleaner, Builder, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Priest, Steward, Minstrel, Jester, Juggler and Soldiers 1 & 2)

Viking (Old Norse) Words  +  English Words from Viking Words Activity

Viking (Old Norse) Words + English Words from Viking Words Activity

The two word mats/ posters could be used as a probable lesson starter. Each illustration has the Old Norse equivalent and, in some cases, the English translation of the Old Norse word. A worksheet [English Words from Viking Words] allows students find out the Old Norse word from the current English one. Dictionaries can be used here where Old Norse origins are shown. The worksheet could also be used as investigative resource for use with the Internet. The worksheet includes an accompanying answer sheet - watch for this when you PRINT IT OUT! To finish the lesson, there are a set of matching Old Norse words to picture cards. There is also a blank set for pupils to fill in from their research. Can the students find additional words derived from Old Norse ones to make extra cards? A P Pullan twpofapp@gmail.com https://theweepencil.wordpress.com/
