THE GREATEST SHOW! - A CLASS WORK ASSEMBLY WITH A CIRCUS THEME AND LINKS TO THE GREATEST SHOWMAN!
**THIS IS THE CLASS ASSEMBLY THAT CAUGHT THE EYE OF HUGH JACKMAN! HE SENT US A GOOD LUCK MESSAGE! - YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ON THE NEWS! FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW TO SEE MORE OR WATCH US ON THE NEWS ON BBC POINTS WEST 6.6.18 **
A class assembly/play we did with our reception class (could be adapted/added to for other year groups). We did this with a Reception class - they were incredible! It ran alongside our ‘Circus’ theme. We focussed lots on The Greatest Showman and the song ‘This is Me’ - this is the main song in the assembly. The assembly is very much about the circus with links to The Greatest Showman, but uses some other songs too, eg: break free - Queen. See below for a more detailed outline.
I’ve included the script, presentation (which includes all music) and some costume letters to be sent home.
I added photos of the children to the slide show which made it even better. The slide show has all been set up and the timings suited us.
We had such great feedback from this class assembly! I hope you enjoy it!
please note: this did run alongside what we were learning at school in reception class, so please see the outline below.

(SEE MAIN IMAGE FOR REAL PREVIEW! -The font and pics look a little weird in the TES preview pics? But it’s actually all done in Comic Sans! I did have it all in pre-cursive, but knew that some schools wouldn’t have this font, so changed it all to Comic Sans. Hopefully it should be in that font when you download!)**
