KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

This resource uses Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’. Although this resource uses the story of The Christmas Story, the resources and activities can be easily transferred to another story. Planning can also be used as a skeleton plan. Please note that the characters and places remained the same as we used this as our nativity! It is an excellent opportunity to include children that suffer with hearing loss. It includes: • Four weeks of plans - three sessions each week, could be three if you had four or more sessions a week (imitation, adapation and independent application - each with Lower Ability, Middle Ability and Higher Ability objectives). • Powerpoint of using Pie Corbett’s style of retelling (openers, connectives and language all fit in with actions) • Resources for each session - Story mountain activity sheets and IWB resource Never Heard the Word Activity Adjectives activity Labels to stick in Literacy books with objectives and recount of activity for each activity. • Time opener actions

The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem! A Christmas Musical for EYFS/KS1

The Race to Bethlehem is a heart-warming version of the Christmas story for younger children (ages 4 to 8) to perform. In the story we meet Farmer Dan’s pigeons and Fluff, a little pigeon who prefers walking to flying. Every year, the village farmers hold a race to Bethlehem for the pigeons and Fluff is determined to get there. On the way he meets Joseph and Mary, who are on their way to Bethlehem too… The Race to Bethlehem story is written simply for young children to learn easily. The 7 original songs are catchy and fun to sing, easy to learn and remember. In addition there are two well-known songs – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (with an additional verse) and Away in a Manger. The script includes stage directions to help with your performance. I hope the children, their teachers and parents enjoy the story of Fluff’s journey to Bethlehem and his encounter with the Nativity story!

Class Assembly/Play - THE GREATEST SHOW! (based on the Greatest Showman)

THE GREATEST SHOW! - A PLAY OR CLASS ASSEMBLY! **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 ** https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-44382007 A class assembly/play for reception, KS1 or even KS2! 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’. 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 timings suited us. We had such great feedback from this production! I hope you enjoy it! (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!)

The Greatest Showman 10 minute medley

The Greatest Showman 10 minute medley

This is a 10 minute medley that I have edited and produced. It would be great for a school performance or an assembly activity. The songs included (in order) are: The greatest show, Million Dreams, This is Me and Come Alive. There are 3 files to this resource: The Song Sheet the lyrics are in two colours, Black for solo singing parts that can be split to suit your group and Blue for the ensemble parts. The Medley MP3 This is a medley arranged by myself, it is a backing track but the original singers remain for the ensemble parts just to give the kids a bit of help. The Medley with singing MP3 I have recorded the song with vocals to show where the solo parts come in. I performed this medley with KS1 and Lower KS2 children. I split the solo parts into 3-4 lines each child, either alone or in little groups. They had no trouble learning their parts and the added ensemble vocals gave the volume needed for the big chorus parts. Please leave a review and happy singing!

The Alphabet Nativity Play; Perfect for special needs, pre-school,primary, all age and inclusion

The Alphabet Nativity Play; Perfect for special needs, pre-school,primary, all age and inclusion

This script is perfect for VISUAL LEARNERS as it is narrated in rhyme as an alphabet poem 26 key words represented by an illustrated letter which is displayed when the keyword is mentioned. Perfect for SPECIAL NEEDS, especially HEARING IMPAIRED as actions are included for the children to do together to represent the word. The story can be ‘walked through’ by actors without speaking parts, although the script also includes 9 simple optional songs too, some of which offer opportunities for character solos if you choose to use them in that way. The songs that are included are particularly well suited for young children, using familiar children's tunes with very simple repetitive lyrics. The lack of necessary stage movement would make it ideal for GROUPS WITH DISABILITIES. Doing the actions as a group would be well suited to any individuals who don’t like the personal pressure or attention of a ‘performance’. The script is easier for THOSE WITH MEMORY PROBLEMS, as the illustrated letters act as a visual prompt and the option of including the 'Action Superstar' can act as a demonstration for the group to copy. There is also an option (which is great fun and I highly recommend) of including an ‘Instructor’ who interacts with the audience in a pantomime style and the already mentioned ‘Action Superstar’ who demonstrates each of the actions to the 26 keywords mentioned during the story. This would make it perfect to PERFORM TO OR AS A WHOLE SCHOOL with the instructor getting the rest of the children to join in, assuming you have someone confident enough to take the instructor role. The Instructor, a sort of pantomime style character, holds signs up for the audience at the appropriate moments (or for the rest of the children/choir etc) to say (‘NO’, ‘AH!’ ‘SH’ etc). In true pantomime style, the response isn’t good enough and the Instructor, also using rhyme and rhythm, tells them so (eg, “That really isn’t good enough…let’s have another ‘ah!’ Remember, he’s the cutest baby that you’ve seen by far!”) I have included a large portion of the script as a preview below to give you a feel of how it will work, together with a copy of the free alphabet poem which is included with the script. The script itself can be obtained from my website www.bestchildrensnativity.com for £9.95 and includes the instantly downloadable script, 9 simple songs using familiar childrens tunes and easily remembered words, sheet music plus mp3 backing tracks, the free Christmas Story Alphabet Poem, and my trademark Alphabet Nativity Roll Call Poem, which gives everyone the opportunity to stand and take a bow and respond in 'register' style. This is a great opportunity to include several aspects and forms of poetry in your curriculum (eg. alphabet poem, story poem, a play in rhyme and rhythm, using nursery rhyme tunes for the songs) and can be used for INCLUSION OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES AND SPECIAL NEEDS.

Simple Nativity Play: preparation done ready to just print and distribute.

Simple Nativity Play: preparation done ready to just print and distribute.

The Simplest Nativity Play Ever has up to 19 short speaking parts of a couple of rhyming lines which make everyone feel special and are very simple to remember. It doesn't need reducing if you don't fill all of the parts and will work for all ages, including mixed age groups and special needs. Great for getting away with stage fright moments. Extremely adaptable. Every person's part has a 'script prompt card' ready for you to print off and distribute. The play can be performed at short notice with little or even NO REHEARSAL if necessary. The narrator tells the story in rhyme and rhythm and every actor's lines are preceded with obvious prompts like : The innkeeper listened, while Joseph said..... “Do you have a room and a lovely warm bed?” The direction is simple and built into the rhyming play eg...So Mary and Joseph will you start to walk? And if you don’t mind we’ll (I’ll) continue to talk. Choice of 2 endings: biblical or more general Christmas message. No music is included but appropriate carols are suggested , or just omit songs or use past familiar favourites. A rhyme and rhythm Nativity Roll Call Poem is included at the end of the play giving an opportunity for each individual to stand and take a bow. The Unending Christmas Story is a story poem included as a summary of the message of the play. I have used the script myself and am available by email for suggestions to help with tackling any specific difficulties. The large script preview gives a better idea of the script and how to use it. The full play is provided as an instantly downloadable, editable word document for £9.95 WITH NO EXTRAS, AND NO LICENCE FEE from my website www.bestchildrensnativity.com, including all of the preprepared scripts prompts which are ready to simply print and distribute. Lots of other free poems (purpose written to compliment the national curriculum) are available from my free educational poetry website for teachers and children www.angelaspoems.com.

Pirates and Mermaids Class Assembly/Show - Suitable for KS1

Pirates and Mermaids Class Assembly/Show - Suitable for KS1

My reception class had to do a class assembly in line with our theme - pirates and mermaids. I wrote a script all about a pirate treasure hunt and what 'treasure' really is - we should treasure friendship more than jewels and gold. 7 pirates go on a quest to find a treasure chest which happens to be in Ibiza! In Ibiza, they meet some Spanish pirates who have the Jolly Rodger flag on their ship. The pirates all work together to look for the treasure and come across some sea creatures and mermaids. The mermaids offer the pirates a treasure full of gold or something special that would bring them all together as friends. The pirates choose the special chest which has our class pet inside! A lot of hard work went into this assembly script and presentation and I hope that someone else can enjoy it! This pack contains: * the full script and costume ideas * a PowerPoint presentation with animation and music - all set up to play. Faces of the children can be added to animated pirate bandanas and mermaid tails (as seen in cover image) * music to run along side (although this music is already loaded onto the PowerPoint) * Letters home to parents to request costumes and attendance to the show
