School’s Out Leavers’ Assembly

School’s Out Leavers’ Assembly. Most recent ‘review’: I only have 15 yr 6s and half of them are very self-conscious. This was a very accessible play for them – nothing too daunting is asked of them. Some of them are playing the teacher parts rather than me. I have added in an awards ceremony in the middle to make it a little longer. I also substituted the final song with a  version of Ed Sheeran’ s Castle on the Hill …words  changed to make it about school, which I found on facebook

School’s Out Leavers’ Assembly. Most recent ‘review’: I only have 15 yr 6s and half of them are very self-conscious. This was a very accessible play for them – nothing too daunting is asked of them.

The cast size (30) can easily be adapted up (for a year group) or down, if necessary, to suit the class size of less than 30.

Duration: Reading time is only about 5 minutes. However, if all 12 songs are used, and say 2 minutes of each are performed, then this takes performance up to around 30 minutes. This is a rough figure depending heavily on how much of each song is used.

What does it take to put a smile on those Year 6 faces? Maybe a large dose of great music and some equally great performances …. by the staff?! The lengths teachers will go to – or are we all really just frustrated rock stars underneath?!

Easy to produce, great fun to do!

School’s Out Leavers’ Assembly Sample Text:

Music 1 Yesterday – Beatles

(Children file into places, singing as they come in and become seated; at the end of the song, all sit disconsolately, hanging heads in misery; group of teachers stand to one side, listening to their students)

Teacher 1:           What a beautiful song!

Teacher 2:           But why the long faces?

Teacher 3:           Why so sad?

Teacher 4:           What have you got to feel sad about?

Teacher 5:           This is your last day at school! Wouldn’t a better choice of music be …?

Music 2 School’s Out – Alice Cooper

(Teachers sing and perform really ‘over the top’ version of song; students look on in horror)

Child 1:                 And they called us ‘sad’?

Child 2:                 ‘Sad’ has to be the understatement of the year!

Child 3:                 I’d say more like – ‘tragedy’!

Teacher 6:           (Beaming from ear to ear) Now you’re talking!

Music 3 Tragedy – Steps or Bee Gees

(Teachers again sing and perform totally ‘over the top’ version of the song; students increasingly alarmed)

Child 4:                 Stop! Stop! Have you all taken leave of your senses?

Teacher 7:           Well, this is supposed to be a leavers’ assembly, isn’t it?

(All teachers fall about laughing)

Child 5:                 But guess what? It’s supposed to be our leavers’ assembly, not yours!

Child 6:                 Yeah! You’ll all still be here this time next year!

Child 7:                 Not like us!

Child 8:                 We’re the ones leaving!

Child 9:                 Not you!

Teacher 8:           So, why aren’t you celebrating?
