Welcome to school assembiles.

School assemblies

Welcome to School Assemblies/Class Plays and smaller cast plays for Key Stages I,II, III and IV. And a new section on Reader’s Theater – scripts for all ages – children and adults.

Third Lockdown – FREE Scripts for parents and teachers

To try and help struggling parents and teachers in this third Lockdown I’m happy to provide FREE resources. Each week I’ll put a new set on my website – these will be Reader’s Theater scripts which are perfect for reading in small groups and easily adaptable to whatever number of readers you wish. I’m open to requests – anything to help in these challenging times.

Quick word about Reader’s Theater:

I have just added a section on www.plays-r-ussell.com called Reader’s Theater which I think could work really well for online teaching – small groups of readers (6 in a group) which can be swapped around due to the relative brevity of the scripts – around 10 to 20 minutes – some shorter (Fairy Tale Quickies – 5 mins) and some longer – most including a lesson plan with teaching input (background to the authors) plus Q & A/Discussion and Further Activities Suggestions. These R.T. scripts are for all ages – children and adults – so could work for book clubs as well. Any suggestions on this – do contact me!

School assemblies and guided reading scripts are an essential part of the Key Stage I (KSI) and Key Stage II (KS2) curriculum. On my plays-r-ussell.com website, you will find all the plays you need to perform and read; and, with my write on request service, plenty more to come!.

A huge thank you to all my lovely customers and for your wonderful feedback – keeps me writing!


1. If you place an order and you do not receive the script as email attachment from me WITHIN 24 HOURS, please do not hesitate to contact me – do not wait any longer. I pride myself on very quick service as I know how tight teacher schedules are time wise. My email address is sue@plays-r-ussell.com – always happy to help. You can place an order via Paypal or credit card – in the case of the latter, the instruction is ‘Check out as Guest’ which takes you to the next page where you can make a card payment.

2. If you experience any difficulty in ordering the script, again – contact me immediately. Technology does not always ‘co-operate’ and I know just how frustrating it can be if you need a script NOW! Whilst ordering directly off the website is by far the easiest and quickest option, there are other options if this proves ‘overly problematic’ – so please do not give up

Word version of the script is available on the purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. I do not make the latter a compulsory part of the purchase process but it is much appreciated when customers show their appreciation of my scripts in this way, either at time of purchase or later.

Enjoy!   Sue
