Superheroes! Assembly

Superheroes! Assembly

'Superheroes!' is one of a series of outstanding assemblies created for primary school children, which includes full script songs and prayers with a part for every child. This assembly is ready to go! ‘Superheroes’ links with many areas of the National Curriculum, including the: English, Music, Drama and PSHE spheres, with a theme that is rooted in upstanding values and is relevant to the children’s everyday lives and interests –including a healthy ‘self-esteem’ injection for all! This assembly is all about recognising the ‘superhero’ in you, giving each child the chance to shine by stating their own unique ‘superhero’ power – from amazing reading skill or artistic genius to the sports star or reliable friend. The assembly also teaches to spot the ‘superhero’ in others and to be thankful for those who support and and save us in a hundred little ways every day. There is a part for every child – whether acting, singing, dancing or leading a prayer! Plans created by an Ofsted Good/Outstanding primary school teacher – History and Drama co-ordinator – with over ten years of experience. These outstanding assemblies have consistently engaged and excited all 30 performers in class… and have even got the adults in the audience up on their feet!

Notation - basic

Notation - basic

This 'easy to use' resource provides step by step instructions for children to learn how to read music. It starts with introducing words with different rhythms. i.e. fly - one, spider - two, caterpillar - 4. Lady-bird has two fast and one slow and Grass- hopper is the same reversed. These rhythms are first clapped and then played on untuned instruments and finally played on tuned instruments using the pentatonic scale of C D E G A. The SMART explains it all. There are sheets with bars for children to compose their own music. I recommend laminating these for multiple use. This resource has a lot of scope and can be used from Year 2 to Year 6 depending on the complexity of the rhythms. I wouldn't recommend years 2 and 3 using tuned instruments at this stage.

The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

An original re-telling of the Nativity Story giving the children the opportunity to play classroom percussion instruments as well. In the story the 'teachers' ask the children which instruments would best paint a musical picture of the characters in the story. As the instruments are selected and played the characters take centre stage and the story unfolds. The children, teachers and parents from Sacred Heart School in Ware and St Joseph's in Hertford really loved the performances.

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

A delightful Nativity Play with a modern day twist. An enlightened Parish Priest determined to make parishioners focus on the real meaning of Christmas hands each family a box of Christmas Crackers as they leave Midnight Mass. These are the 'Nativity Crackers' and each riddle and gift reveals something about the Christmas Story. As the crackers are pulled and the message dawns on the family, they freeze frame and we are transported back in time to the events of the first Christmas Story. The children, staff and parents of two Hertfordshire schools loved this play. The songs in a variety of styles offer much scope for actions, dance and solos and the script can be adapted to suit your needs.

The Magic Nativitree

The Magic Nativitree

This is a Magical Christmas Nativity play in more ways than one. The story starts when the teacher announces that the local priest has asked Years 1&2 to provide a tree for the Christmas Tree Festival in his church but the tree has to tell the story of the nativity. As the children are dispatched to the hall to create their decorations magical things happen when the children put their decoration on the tree. The decorations come alive, sprinkle magic glitter on the children and the song and dance begins. Cohesion is added to the play in the form of the 'Cutting and Sticking Song' which the children loved and the songs are cheerful and varied ranging from the 'Country and Western' style of the 'Animals Song and Dance' to the 'Rock and Roll' genre of the 'Shepherd's Song and Dance.' As the final song says......'The Magic Nativitree.........helps us see.........what Christmas means for you and me.'

Song and Rhyme at Christmas Time (A Simple Christmas Nativity)

Song and Rhyme at Christmas Time (A Simple Christmas Nativity)

A simple re-telling of the traditional nativity with narration in rhyme, acting and singing. The songs are simple with opportunities for dancing and soloists but the addition of actions in the choruses of the songs means that all children feel involved and have a happy and pro-active nativity experience whilst learning about the true meaning of Christmas.
