Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it.
It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks.
It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want.
Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.

This is a resource pack based around the Devising Log in Component 2 (Devising Drama). I have gone through and broken the exemplar answers provided by AQA into sections and given ideas as to how a student may wish to structure their work.
I found this very useful, personally, in understanding what needed to be within each section and have used it to inform my planning for the year ahead.
I hope you find it of use.
