St George and the Dragon Assembly for Key Stage I

St George and the Dragon Assembly for Key Stage I

St. George and The Dragon Assembly - Key Stage One Slightly alternative version, this one, with just one knight in shining armour amongst 14 pairs of princesses and dragons! You could say, speed dating with a difference! Whatever way you look at it, the outcome is very different from the usual version of the story. The cast is adaptable to any size class - just adjust the number of princesses and dragons! Duration: around 10 - 15 minutes (Reading time just 5 minutes but this does not allow for music suggestions and ‘parade’). Sample Text: Princess 1: (Interrupting whilst preening herself) I’m the beautiful princess! St. George: (Looking unimpressed) Oh, really? Princess 1: (Stamping her foot angrily) Yes, really! (To St. George) And who are you? St. George: St. George, since you ask! Princess 1: (Shrieking) No! There must be some mistake! Narrator: Sorry? What do you mean? Princess 1: Well, look at him! He’s meant to be handsome! St. George: And you’re meant to be?(pauses) … what was it? Oh yes, beautiful? (St. George and Princess 1 stand glaring at each other) Narrator: Now! Now! This will never do! As hero and heroine, you are meant to be in love! Princess 1: No way! St. George: Not likely! Narrator: (Clutching head and holding up notes) Oh for goodness sake! How am I going to make this work? St. George: Start with the dragon! (Aside to audience, pointing at Princess 1) And I don’t mean her!

Assembly Humility Holy Week Palm Sunday

Assembly Humility Holy Week Palm Sunday

This assembly explores the Christian value of humility using Palm Sunday and the symbolism of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem on a donkey. It is ideal to use during the week preceding Easter (Holy Week) or in the lead up to Palm Sunday. Start by asking children what words they would use to describe the white horse. There is a word art image with likely answers. This assembly encourages children to think of ways they can practise the Christian value of humility, and ends with a prayer. It could also be used as part of a lesson input in a church school where children then create their own palm frond crosses, from paper or real palm leaves. I would be grateful if you could leave a review, once you have used this resource.
