Fun Class Assembly  Ancient 'Greeks Got Talent!'

Fun Class Assembly Ancient 'Greeks Got Talent!'

Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it. It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks. It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want. Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.
