World Cup Themed Year 4 Leavers Show Script

World Cup Themed Year 4 Leavers Show Script

My year 4 class wanted to do a World Cup themed leavers show this year, but I couldn’t find anything suitable that would allow them to also share their memories and stories, so I wrote this instead. There are 5 acts in the show, each one has space for memories from a specific time/year group - namely: reception and nursery (combined), year 1, year 2, year 3 and year 4 (in that order). For obvious reasons these will need to be completed by you, although I had my class write their own scripts for each of these bits and just added them in when they were done to save me some time. There is also a song at the end of each act. These are not detailed due to copyright issues - you will have to choose your own. With my class I have used a mix of songs the children liked singing in school and some pop songs they enjoy with altered lyrics. In addition there is a bit for a group of children to do a dance/gymnastics/karate/origami/whatever else suits your kids routine (cheerleaders bit). It’s a fairly straightforward setup, and props wise the minimum you would need are a desk and chairs for the commentators to sit at on stage, and a whistle. While it’s set up for year 4, it could easily be adapted for year 6 or another primary age class. PLEASE NOTE: Act 5 contains some reference to the pen licence music (Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra, the theme from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey), which I play to my class when someone is being awarded a pen licence. Clearly this will not be relevant to your children so the final ‘breaking news’ act will need a slight bit of tweaking to fit your class.
