Vegetables Assembly or Class Play for Key Stage One

Vegetables Assembly or Class Play
This assembly or class play, although written for Key Stage I (5 – 7 year olds), could also be used by Key Stage II – the lower end of. If the text is deemed too simple for the purposes of Key Stage II, more information could easily be added on – I just thought KS II children might appreciate some of the humour!
Cast of 25 (Vegetables!)
This number can easily be increased or decreased depending on the number of children in the class.
Duration – around 10 to 15 minutes not including music suggestions.
This script was great fun to write – characters like Pea (happy!), Potato (don’t mention crisps!), and a highly sensitive Brussels Sprout - positively jumped off the page! But whilst raising a few laughs along the way, it also delivers a very serious message about looking after our health – having a good diet.
This is part of a series on healthy living.
Sample Text:
Potato: Sorry! Oh dear. I’m such a potato head at times!
(Whole cast laughs)
Narrator: You certainly are! Well, as we all seem to be enjoying ourselves (pauses)
(Aside to audience) rather too much, if you ask me
Let’s hear some more funny vegetable names.
Radish: There’s egg plant!
Runner Bean: And fat hen!
Narrator: (Exclaiming) No! You cannot be serious!
(Both Radish and Runner Bean nod their heads)
Narrator: They’ll be telling me there’s a vegetable named after an elephant next!
Yam: There is! The elephant foot yam!
Narrator: (Exclaiming) No!
Soy Bean: Well, what about the Fiddlehead?
Spinach: And the Good King Henry?
Swede: And the Lizard’s Tale?
Turnip: And the Kuka?
Water Chestnut: And the Poke?
Watercress: And Shepherd’s Purse?
Narrator: (Holds up hand) Stop! I think I’m going mad! And I thought an assembly on vegetables would be (pauses) well, nothing like this!
Pea: You mean, fun? What’s wrong with that?
Narrator: Well, nothing. I mean, I wouldn’t want anyone to think vegetables were boring!
Asparagus: Exactly!
Narrator: (To Cast) And you’ve just proved they’re anything but (pauses) boring, that is!
Bamboo Shoot: But we do also have something very serious to say.
Beetroot: We certainly do.
