A Not So English Breakfast (Musical Assembly for KS2)

A Not-so-English Breakfast. A musical assembly for primary schools. Supplied with two songs which have vocals tracks and backing tracks. No musical ability needed Synopsis: It’s breakfast time for an ordinary family. Dad has been grumbling that he wants a full English breakfast- he says he will never eat any “foreign food.” But a full English breakfast actually consists almost entirely of foods from other countries- cornflakes, bacon, tea, coffee, marmalade etc. Children in the audience are delighted as the various dishes are whisked away from him! (More so if a teacher plays the part of Dad) There are lots of possibilities for follow-up work about where food comes from, rhymes, food surveys etc. Songs: “I had a sausage” (A very silly song- children love it) “We Give thanks” (A jolly song of thanks with rap-style spoken verses) Characters: Narrator, dad, mum, sons (Leroy and Adam), daughters (Ann and Julie), singers

There's No-one Quite Like Me (Musical Play based on "The Ugly Duckling"

(0)
A memorable end-of-term show or special extended assembly for ages 5 –11 (Some parts can be narrated by the teacher when used solely with younger pupils.) Duration approx 40-50 min. Fantastic fun to act, sing and dance, but it also explores serious PSHE issues, especially bullying, homelessness and low self esteem. This heart-warming version of “The Ugly Duckling” is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic dark tale. Andersen himself was no stranger to hardship and non-acceptance, which is a theme that could be explored in its own right in school. Mother Duck’s last egg hatches into an ugly, ungainly creature, and he is ridiculed and bullied in the barnyard. He runs away to the marshes and is befriended by the wild ducks, but he loses track of them during the hunting season. A travelling gypsy shows kindness to him, and he is then taken in by a farmer and his family. The farmer’s cat, dog and hen become jealous and bully him so he runs away again. At last he matures into a beautiful swan, finds his self-esteem and flies to freedom. Fantastic- A nice simple show with great characters, and thought-provoking songs which are easy to learn. No musical ability needed- just sing and dance to the backing tracks. Brilliant for class lessons too. Comes with script, 12 songs, backing tracks, PowerPoint Presentation, Piano Score, follow-up work and 20 worksheets. School Performance licence included FREE.
