Pirates and Mermaids Class Assembly/Show - Suitable for KS1

Pirates and Mermaids Class Assembly/Show - Suitable for KS1

My reception class had to do a class assembly in line with our theme - pirates and mermaids. I wrote a script all about a pirate treasure hunt and what 'treasure' really is - we should treasure friendship more than jewels and gold. 7 pirates go on a quest to find a treasure chest which happens to be in Ibiza! In Ibiza, they meet some Spanish pirates who have the Jolly Rodger flag on their ship. The pirates all work together to look for the treasure and come across some sea creatures and mermaids. The mermaids offer the pirates a treasure full of gold or something special that would bring them all together as friends. The pirates choose the special chest which has our class pet inside! A lot of hard work went into this assembly script and presentation and I hope that someone else can enjoy it! This pack contains: * the full script and costume ideas * a PowerPoint presentation with animation and music - all set up to play. Faces of the children can be added to animated pirate bandanas and mermaid tails (as seen in cover image) * music to run along side (although this music is already loaded onto the PowerPoint) * Letters home to parents to request costumes and attendance to the show

Live Theatre Literacy Mat

Live Theatre Literacy Mat

A simple literacy mat designed to help GCSE students to write live theatre reviews/evaluations. The OCR GCSE Spec has been used to help create this, however I'm certain it can be used for other specifications as well. Designed to be a 'prompt' for students rather than a 'how to write' resource.

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script

David and Goliath Assembly, Class Play or Guided Reading Script Cast of 10 Duration: 5 - 10 minutes reading time (not including music suggestions) This play may be used as an assembly for performance, or a play or guided reading script within the classroom. Along with delivering the story of David and Goliath, there are brief notes at the end to facilitate further discussion - on the themes of bullying, self-belief and self-strength. There are numerous other scripts on these themes in the PSHE section of the website including one on bullying which could be combined with this script to produce a longer play. Sample Text Goliath: Well, let’s see if he can work the same magic (pauses) on the battlefield! David: Against you? I’m more than up for it! King Saul: But that’s insane! Servant: Yes, begging your pardon, but how can you possibly hope to win (pauses, pointing at Goliath) against that? David: (Shrugging his shoulders, casually) What’s to prove? He’s just (pauses) Servant: (Interrupting) Big? Philistine Soldier 1: (Clapping) Bravo! Philistine Soldier 2: (Clapping) So you noticed? David: Huh! Size isn’t everything! (Goliath strides over to David, towering above him) Goliath: Oh really? (David stands his ground, unflinching) David: Yes, really! You don’t frighten me, you great bully! There’s more to winning a battle than sheer brawn, you know. Narrator: No, I rather fear he doesn’t know. I’m not even sure he understands what you’re saying! Goliath: (Furiously) Understand what you’re saying? What’s to understand, that’s what I want to know! Narrator: Quite! My point exactly! (David starts to walk away) Goliath: Huh! I knew he wouldn’t stick around! A coward, like the rest of you! King Saul: Oh, don’t be so ridiculous! Look at you! All ready in your battle gear! Does my lad David look ready to you? Goliath: Well, now you come to mention it King Saul: So. If you don’t mind, we’ll just take a short time to get David into my armour and David: (Interrupting) Oh don’t worry! That won’t be necessary! I’m pretty much good to go! King Saul: But what about some protection? A body shield at least? David: No, no. That won’t be necessary, either. I know what I need and I’ll be back in a minute. (Exit David) Goliath: Bah! Just an excuse to do a runner! You wait! There’s no way that wee boy is coming back to take on me!
