Moana has returned to visit her parents for Christmas only to wake up one morning to find their magic Christmas tree has been stolen by the Grinch! They must climb Mount Crumpit to retrieve it in time for their party or Christmas will be ruined! This is an original script I created for my 7-11 year olds Acting course through their suggestions. There are 2 very flexible song suggestions and 2 dance suggestions: these can be performed / changed / adapted however the director sees fit.

Superheroes! Assembly

Superheroes! Assembly

'Superheroes!' is one of a series of outstanding assemblies created for primary school children, which includes full script songs and prayers with a part for every child. This assembly is ready to go! ‘Superheroes’ links with many areas of the National Curriculum, including the: English, Music, Drama and PSHE spheres, with a theme that is rooted in upstanding values and is relevant to the children’s everyday lives and interests –including a healthy ‘self-esteem’ injection for all! This assembly is all about recognising the ‘superhero’ in you, giving each child the chance to shine by stating their own unique ‘superhero’ power – from amazing reading skill or artistic genius to the sports star or reliable friend. The assembly also teaches to spot the ‘superhero’ in others and to be thankful for those who support and and save us in a hundred little ways every day. There is a part for every child – whether acting, singing, dancing or leading a prayer! Plans created by an Ofsted Good/Outstanding primary school teacher – History and Drama co-ordinator – with over ten years of experience. These outstanding assemblies have consistently engaged and excited all 30 performers in class… and have even got the adults in the audience up on their feet!

Hallowe'en Activities

Hallowe'en Activities

A fun-packed, jam-packed goodie bag of Tricks and Treats for primary aged children at Hallowe'en time. There's a detailed set of activities for drama games, an arty party and warm-up games with a spooky twist, involving music, mindfulness, concentration , role-play, and moments of calm. The activities can form sessions on their own, but can be cherry picked to be incorporated to stimulate or round-off similarly themed lessons. At the end of the document, there's a short but informative recommended book list, including notes on the origins of the folk stories we know today that are far more terrifying in their original forms than their Disneyified counterparts. JUST ADDED! A set of worksheets based on the skull decorations often seen during Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico and America. The first sheet provides illustrative examples for the children to look at and discuss (as a class. group, talking partner etc), the second sheet is a very basic colouring in (that can be added to with the children's own design and flowers etc), and the third is the basic skull shape, which is up to the children to design (and again flowers etc can be added). The children's skull pictures can be printed or stuck to card and made into masks by cutting out the eye holes and making holes at either side of the face.

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

Here are the full set of lesson plans, presentations and printable resources that you'll need for sessions with EYFS, Key Stage 1 or 2 children and their teachers. These lessons introduce the famous 'Double, double, toil and trouble...' verses from the play, Macbeth, said by the witches as they create a spell and is a great way to bring children to the Bard for the first time. Children get to act out the spell and build their own verses, using key vocabulary, and rhythm and rhyme. There are also lessons on capacity, counting, sorting, music, and art. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and hallowe'en activities etc. A follow-up to the drama and music work could be a musical scene based on the spell, which could become a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production, depending on the ability of your pupils. Every lesson has clear aims and success criteria, a comprehensive list of resources, helpful key words and specially designed worksheets and/or presentations, which are all created to be adaptable for your settings and your classes. My aim to make something that is useful and usable for teachers, that is fun for everybody, while creating memorable educational experiences. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds many times, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities. To hear a FREE recording of the poem, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/

Flamenco: social history of flamenco, gypsies, civil war, oppression, Andalucia etc

Flamenco: social history of flamenco, gypsies, civil war, oppression, Andalucia etc

This is a resource which takes you through the history of flamenco. From the Islamic Empire, Isabel and Ferdinand to Franco's Spain and lastly to now. How and why did flamenco develop? What is it now and what was it before? Lots of videos and pictures and maps to demonstrate. Lots of notes in the comments section. I am running a Spanish and Latin American Extra Curricular Club at school, not sure if this helps for history or dance but it is packed with interesting info, lots of notes in the notes section on PPT. Let me know how you are using it i.e. for what lessons etc.

Year 1/2 Dance planning (Jungle animal theme)

Year 1/2 Dance planning (Jungle animal theme)

Included in this pack is a 4 week lesson plan which is broken into separate lessons, resulting in groups of children to create a dance to the jungle theme music. Each lesson includes objectives, teaching and assessment points. Warm up song 'Walking in the Jungle' (This brilliant clip was found from the link below) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoSq-yZcJ-4 Main jungle theme song (included in the pack), created by me (features animal jungle sounds) is to be used for the main dance. This dance topic is suitable for children from Early Years to Year 3. I have taught it with several year groups and they have thoroughly enjoyed it! It's great fun filming the finished dances and allowing the children to watch them back and give peer feedback. Please leave feedback if you purchase and use this resource. Thank you :)
