Y6 Leaver's Assembly - The Oscars

Y6 Leaver's Assembly - The Oscars

(1)
This assembly is based around the Oscars. Each child will win an award and give a speech. It includes a full script and PowerPoint to accompany it. There is also a voting form for the children in class (based on 28) to vote for their nominations - you may want to 'change some' to ensure all children win one award (e.g. best sportsman or funniest). For the PowerPoint, you will just need to add in the nominations photos and names. On the script names will need to be added. The children all get to see their nominations (approximately 3 each), when preparing, however they don't get to find out which award they have won until the assembly (all winning names should be placed in envelopes). I have written 'child 1' etc in the script, so this may need adapting to ensure the right children win appropriate awards, as ours did. The script also includes various famous people (children dressed up) giving the awards (eg the Queen). Our children loved this assembly - being nominated and giving speeches.

Guided Reading questions for the whole of Skellig

(0)
This resource includes questions for the whole of the book ‘Skellig’ - I have used these questions in Guided and Shared Reading, homework and intervention groups. As the chapters are quite short, there are on average 4-6 questions per chapter (obviously some have more). Answers will vary based on the evidence a child provides, therefore this only includes questions.

Year 6 Leavers Assembly - Prison Break

(0)
This assembly script is designed for Y6 leavers - focusing on being locked in ‘primary jail’ for various crimes and needed to perform tasks to escape to secondary school. Each child has committed a crime (e.g. crimes against handwriting/dad dancing etc). one child from each task escapes until they join a group at the end, who perform a dance - therefore when adapting to suit your class, you may need to change the crimes or order of children. It could be adapted to suit any transition year. Our class thoroughly enjoyed this play.

Challenging vocabulary for Year 6 writing

(0)
A selection of challenging vocabulary (to place on your display) with definitions, which challenges the children to use more complex choices. I have used it this year in my class and the impact on the children's writing was immediate. During an observation by an OFSTED inspection, it was high lighted as a really strength. The topics links to class novels and include: narratives, discussions, persuasion, poetry (rap and WW1), newspapers, reports and Britain Since 1948. The vocabulary links to both the writing genre and the medium (class novel). Class novels include: Skellig, Kensuke's Kingdom, Holes, Coraline and Once. These topics covered my whole year's teaching.
