The Gruffalo.(With new link) A simple musical play or assembly

(19)
I have added some songs to the Gruffalo. They are ROCK classics. You can find backing tracks and lyrics sort of karaoke on Youtube. (There is a link on the script) These are relatively simple songs and your children will have fun singing and if possible playing along. I share out the narrator parts to give more children a speaking role. I have done this in assembly quite a few times now, always seems to go down well it takes about 15-20 mins.

Magic Spell Maker (Rhyming Poem)

(4)
A rhyming poem which you can change (drop down boxes) to see how different words fit. The children can do this individually if you download the file and can put it on a computer they have access to. Or it can be used as a way of starting the lesson to give them ideas before the children try by themselves. Does not work with older versions of Word.

(KS2 Maths/measuring length)Hula Hoop Challenge

(0)
This is an activity to get the children to think about how they measure things. There are oppportunities to use multiplication and division. This can be done without Hula Hoops but my children found it much more fun using and then eating the crisps. You need about two packets per group.

Minecraft Play/ assembly with accompanying backing tracks on YouTube.

(0)
This is short play I did with my class. I made some boxes for the children who were characters from the game. The whole class took part and everybody sang. Took about a week to learn, but we were very short on time. There are some songs with backing tracks and words on the youtube film. I played the film on a projector while the children did the play. The script will need a bit of adapting to suit your class. The children really enjoyed taking part and the parents were very complimentary afterwards. Hope this is helpful. This is a link to video of the songs in the play. copy and paste it into browser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0POIJSrmYE

This can be a quiz or group activity. (Year 4 upwards) The object is to solve 16 puzzles to stop the Evil Mastermind stealing happiness from the world. The puzzles are Maths, English or logic based. The PDF includes an answer sheet and a clue sheet that is needed to solve some of the puzzles.
