Summer Assembly for Key Stage One

Summer Assembly for Key Stage One Sunshine and the seaside - how can you not love the summer? Have a word with our poor narrator - first it's hay fever and then ... that wasp! Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down. Duration - around 10 minutes, though this can be extended with the addition of suggested poems. This is one of a collection of assemblies on The Seasons - the others all available separately (Autumn, Winter and Spring) from this website and www.plays-r-ussell.com Sample Text: (Sound of another kind of buzzing) (Whole cast fling their arms around, in agitation) (Enter wasp, Child 29) Narrator: Oh dear! Just when everything was so perfect! A wasp! Wasp: Hey! That’s not very nice! Narrator: And neither are you! Always making a nuisance of yourself! Wasp: Well, I do love those picnics! Narrator: But we don’t love you! Especially not your stings! Wasp: Well, (looking at the cast) if you wouldn’t all wave your arms around! That just gets me really angry! Narrator: And there’s nothing worse than an angry wasp! (Narrator swats wasp away with a piece of newspaper) Narrator: Be off with you!

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

SAVE 20% BY PURCHASING THE BUNDLE! 'What's The Weather?' bundle is an completely integrated unit for teaching the topic of weather. My aim was to make this unit as wide-ranging as possible to suit varied ability levels. The pack content should give teachers enough element of choice to suit students' needs. Children are often scared of thunderstorms, but they love jumping in puddles of water and looking at rainbows after a storm ends. Making observations about the weather and discussing climate are great ways to teach children about science, especially since weather is something children can easily relate to and understand. Whether it's clear and sunny or rainy and windy outside, weather and climate affect children's lives every day. It dictates our wardrobe, sometimes affects our moods. It can bring us together as a community. If students have an early curiosity in weather, not only could it help them in their Maths and Science studies in school, it may even inspire the next generation of forecasters or meteorologists! ******************************************** FILE 1: CONTENT • Cover • Weather and Climate Presentation • Weather Vocabulary Display • Weather Instruments Posters • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 2: CONTENT • Cover/Contents • Thinking Maps • Weather Discussion Cards • Weather Phenomenon Research • Weather Recording Sheets • Weather Experiments & Reports • Weather Forecasting • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 3: CONTENT The following activities use key weather vocabulary. • Cover/Contents LITERACY STATIONS • Compound Word Match • Syllable Sort • Parts of Speech Sort MATHS ACTIVITIES • Greater/Less Than Rainbows • Weather Patterning GAMES • Matching Games SIMPLE WORKSHEET ACTIVITIES, GAMES AND PUZZLES • Discussion Weather Wheel • Scrambled Weather Words • Word to Picture Match • Weather Words Missing Letters • Seasonal Weather Drawing • Alphabetical Order • Wordsearches x 2, plus keys • Weather Words Shapes • Weather Words Opposites • Favourite Weather • TOU/Credits TOTAL PAGE COUNT: 127 ******************************************** RELATED RESOURCES What's The Weather Part 1: Presentation and Display What's The Weather Part 2: Activities What's The Weather Part 3: Literacy and Maths Activities ******************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Bundles
