Earth, Sun and Moon - Class Assembly KS2Quick View

Earth, Sun and Moon - Class Assembly KS2

This was a KS2 class assembly linked to our topic ‘Space’. I had previously (1 year earlier) done an Assembly on ‘Space’ but with a focus on ‘Planets’ and couldn’t repeat the same assembly. So made a new one, same time of year/same curriculum, but this assembly focusses on the ‘Moon’ and its phases. A word document is provided with the play script, a Ppt presentation to accompany the play script and a mp4 video format of the song - with lyrics - of the song ‘Bad Moon Rising’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival. We didn’t sing this song; instead we created a dance as a class (lined up at the front in a single file facing the audience) with each move linked to the lyrics. The children helped create the moves which made the assembly practise all the more engaging. The TA stood at the back during the assembly and the children followed her moves simultaneously. Any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I hope this description helps.

Earth, Moon and Sun - Quiz, Quiz, Trade, Key Stage 2, space

Quiz, Quiz, Trade is a fun and active way for children to learn facts. The cards can be tailored to cover any subject area, topic or learning objective and are particularly useful for introducing a new subject area that your class wouldn't already know lots about. You could include a range of differentiated questions, but I have often found that the children you least expect will learn the more complicated facts after playing this game. The idea behind Quiz, Quiz, Trade is that it is a fun, non-threatening and exciting game that is inclusive for all and will help all children in your class to acquire knowledge quickly. Really handy when you just need them to have a bit of background knowledge or learn something quickly in order to apply or develop the knowledge in their work. Quiz, Quiz, Trade can be used for any age group (my cards are all aimed at years 4-6) that will be able to read the questions and answers. I have used Quiz, Quiz, Trade in observations with much success (see instruction page) and consistently use it to introduce new topics in class-the children love it!
