Ancient Greece Class Assembly

Ancient Greece Class Assembly

This play script was written for a year 6 class. There are some concepts and words that make it appropriate for older grades as well. Some amendments might be necessary to use for younger years (in which case you may want to purchase the copy of this script that is fully editable in our shop). There are phonetic spellings included beside certain words to help with pronunciation. The script is written with 25 speaking parts however these can easily be shared to make more parts (although there are plenty of non-speaking actions needed on stage). Lines can also be easily merged together to cater to smaller groups. Currently there are 8 narrator parts, 12 Greek gods and 5 villagers. It should take between 15-25 minutes to perform. The first scene of the play reviews some basic geographical facts and examines ancient maps versus today's. Things we have gained from ancient Greek culture such as democracy and philosophy are touched on as well. The second scene is a series of tableaus (students form a still image with their bodies, as if creating a snapshot or picture of an event) that help demonstrate just how long ago 'ancient Greece' was, by showing significant events in history. The third scene introduces the 12 main gods who lived on Mount Olympus. Students have the opportunity to present any class work that represents the gods. A shield designed to represent each one or a poster that highlights each gods power or realm. The final scene is the only 'acting out' scene and it is a retelling of the myth about how Athens became Athena's city. **Please note this is a PDF file, so cannot be edited. It is double spaced so that character roles can be written in by hand or amendments can be made on paper. We also offer a fully editable version in a word document. Please visit our shop to find it!** Hope your class enjoys it as much as mine did!

Victorian class assembly **Fully Editable**

Victorian class assembly **Fully Editable**

This script was written for a year 4 class, but could easily be adapted for other year groups. It covers topics from our term including healthy eating and balanced diets; inner forces and temptation; Victorian inventions, schools and life for rich vs poor. It is titled Oliver and Olivia and is based on Oliver Twist. It begins in the orphanage's food hall (discuss healthy eating). The 'twins' then leave for London and meet the pickpockets (discuss temptation of stealing). Then they meet a friendly lady who takes them in (discuss school and life of rich vs poor). There are currently 17 speaking roles but this number can be increased by sharing lines (for example there are 4 pickpockets who each have 4 or 5 lines, but you could increase the pickpockets and decrease the number of lines). We used 2 songs in this play as well - Food Train and Pick a Pocket or Two. They are not included, but can easily be found online or changed/removed all together. Hope you class enjoys this as much as mine did!

Clocks Telling The Time Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Clocks Telling The Time Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Clocks'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
