Awe and Wonder Assembly Sample Text:
(Enter 4 children in pyjamas)
Narrator: Looks like you lot are ready for bed!
Child 12: (Pointing up) Star gazing!
Child 13: That’s what we’re doing!
Child 14: (Sighing) They’re so beautiful!
Child 15: (To Narrator) Care to join us?
Narrator: Don’t mind if I do! What can you see?
(As Narrator is gazing upwards, children share out chocolates among themselves; Narrator suddenly realises he has been ‘duped’)
Narrator: Hey! Give me those chocolates!
Child 12: But we’re about to tell you about them!
Child 13: This one is the name of a group of stars – a galaxy!
Child 14: This one is the galaxy we live in – the Milky Way!
Narrator: (To Child 15) And this one?
Child 15: Well, this one isn’t really a star. It’s a planet – Mars!
Narrator: (Taking Mars bar) Well, I’d better have that one, then!
(To audience, aside) My favourite!
