Year 6 Leavers' Assembly - poem, script and presentation

Year 6 Leavers' Assembly - poem, script and presentation

I wrote this script from scratch, which is based on a standard day at school in Year 6. Filled with corny puns! Adapt away as there may be things you do not wish to include (e.g. photostories, the songs etc.) Every child takes part by reading memories for members of staff and by singing the song. The number of acting roles could be extended to about 25, depending on how you adapt it.

Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Fairy Tales are canonical texts, passed through the ages. These resources ask pupils to explore the different characters perspectives in fairy tales and then helps guide them into preparation for their own performance of a classic Fairy Tale. For higher ability or older students you could ask them to modernise the fairy tales or even ‘explode the canon’ and turn the fairy tale on it’s head! Thanks so much for viewing, please review and feel free to browse to other resources too (many of them are free as I know how hard us teachers work!) Many thanks, Short

CLASS ASSEMBLY: HOW THE SEA BECAME SALTY (links well to the topic of myths)

Lal Miah is down on his luck but his kind nature brings him fortune in the form of a magic grinder which changes his life. Meanwhile, his evil brother Oobi is terribly jealous and sets about to steal the grinder. And somehow this story of two brothers unfolds to cleverly explain how the sea became salty. A very witty and clever old Indian myth has been retold with humour, music and sound effects. Ready to just print and use. It is suitable for the topic of myths however this story can be used as a one-off assembly as it stands on its own as a funny and clever story. Visit www.savingteachertime.co.uk

Macbeth - Modern Script

Macbeth - Modern Script

A complete script for Macbeth but with a Sik twist. Every scene and every act are included in this modern script which is designed for KS3 students who “don’t get” all the old words. The key quotes and witches lines are kept as original however the majority of the text has been modernised with some humour thrown in. My bottom set Year 9 loved reading this and a group of reluctant readers began volunteering for parts! An example of the changed script: MACBETH: (Aside) Glamis, and Thane of Cawdor! Those bearded women were right! (To Ross and Angus)Thanks for telling me. (To Banquo) Well if they were right about this Cawdor thing maybe they were right about your children becoming kings! BANQUO: I dunno mate. But 'tis strange: And sometimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, In order to trick us later on. MACBETH: (Aside) Two truths are told, what if they were right about me being King? I could have a new castle, get the best horses and I’d look dope in a crown. BANQUO: Snap out of it worthy Macbeth, let’s get to that pub. MACBETH: Sounds like a good plan. Banquo, we’ll talk more about those women we met later on.

Each child has committed a crime (e.g. crimes against handwriting/dad dancing etc). one child from each task escapes until they join a group at the end, who perform a dance - therefore when adapting to suit your class, you may need to change the crimes or order of children.

World Cup Themed Year 4 Leavers Show Script

World Cup Themed Year 4 Leavers Show Script

My year 4 class wanted to do a World Cup themed leavers show this year, but I couldn’t find anything suitable that would allow them to also share their memories and stories, so I wrote this instead. There are 5 acts in the show, each one has space for memories from a specific time/year group - namely: reception and nursery (combined), year 1, year 2, year 3 and year 4 (in that order). For obvious reasons these will need to be completed by you, although I had my class write their own scripts for each of these bits and just added them in when they were done to save me some time. There is also a song at the end of each act. These are not detailed due to copyright issues - you will have to choose your own. With my class I have used a mix of songs the children liked singing in school and some pop songs they enjoy with altered lyrics. In addition there is a bit for a group of children to do a dance/gymnastics/karate/origami/whatever else suits your kids routine (cheerleaders bit). It’s a fairly straightforward setup, and props wise the minimum you would need are a desk and chairs for the commentators to sit at on stage, and a whistle. While it’s set up for year 4, it could easily be adapted for year 6 or another primary age class. PLEASE NOTE: Act 5 contains some reference to the pen licence music (Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra, the theme from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey), which I play to my class when someone is being awarded a pen licence. Clearly this will not be relevant to your children so the final ‘breaking news’ act will need a slight bit of tweaking to fit your class.

The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem is a heart-warming version of the Christmas story for younger children (ages 4 to 8) to perform. In the story we meet Farmer Dan’s pigeons and Fluff, a little pigeon who prefers walking to flying. Every year, the village farmers hold a race to Bethlehem for the pigeons and Fluff is determined to get there. On the way he meets Joseph and Mary, who are on their way to Bethlehem too… The Race to Bethlehem story is written simply for young children to learn easily. The 7 original songs are catchy and fun to sing, easy to learn and remember. In addition there are two well-known songs – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (with an additional verse) and Away in a Manger. The script includes stage directions to help with your performance. I hope the children, their teachers and parents enjoy the story of Fluff’s journey to Bethlehem and his encounter with the Nativity story!

Christmas play 'When the 3 kings got lost'.

Christmas play 'When the 3 kings got lost'.

I wrote this play based on the nativity story - based mostly on the 3 kings who get lost trying to find where baby Jesus is being born. I used lots of local references - to the local hospital, a nearby toll bridge and a local hotel / castle - but it should be easy to substitute in local landmarks near you. It has 21 speaking parts, suitable for KS2 and Y2 children) and as many parts for ‘farm animals’ as you want (non-speaking parts). There are places suggested for 6 songs, there are some suggested songs but you could put in any songs of your choice. We performed this to the parents at Christmas a few years ago and they loved all the local references, it went down very well.
