Outer Space Assembly - whole class, KS2

Included in this pack:

A short play (including a Word version of the script to change the number of speaking parts etc)
Two original poems (PPT slides + written versions)
PPT slides of all the planets

1) 'I’m the Most Important Planet' - a play about the planets arguing over who is the most important. It has speaking parts for a class of 30 children, but this can be altered to have less speakers. It includes several facts about each planet.

I have left it as a word document so changes can be made.

As well as the full script I have also included the individual planet script excerpts, to save everyone having to have a copy of the full script.

2) 'A Mass of Puzzling Questions' - a gentle, descriptive poem about outer space; it has two stanzas and is non-rhyming. This could be used to inspire artwork, music, poetry writing and dance work – all of which could be included in the assembly.

3) 'Fight in Space' - a short poem about spaceships having a fight in space; it has seven short stanzas and is non-rhyming. This is an action poem full of noises and could be used to inspire artwork, poetry writing, music and a dramatic interpretation - all of which could be included in the assembly.
