Harvest Festival Whole Class Assembly
Harvest Festival Whole Class Assembly was written for a cast of 30 (easily adapted up or down) is a kind of alternative Harvest Festival, the suggestion being the class are the crop with teachers as harvesters.
Duration around 10 – 20 minutes depending on how much music is used.
Starting with the hymn ‘We plough the fields and scatter’ and ending with beautiful Michael Jackson song – ‘We are the world, we are the children’ which sums up the message behind this assembly.
Also available, FREE Harvest Festival script was written for 6 speakers (feathery fowl!) but with suggestions in productions notes as to how to convert this into a whole class assembly. Just drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
Harvest Festival Whole Class Assembly. Sample Text
Narrator: Well, that sounds wonderful. And what kind of gifts did you have in mind?
Child 1: That’s easy!
Narrator: Really? I always have terrible problems thinking who to give what!
Child 1: It’s easy because all you have to do is give or share whatever gift you have!
Narrator: Wait a minute! You’re losing me! (Repeating) ‘Whatever gift you have’?
Child 2: Right! We all have our own special gift to give!
Child 3: Bit like a seed in all of us.
Child 4: Sometimes that seed germinates by itself
(Enter Child 5, singing, as ‘rock star’ – choice of ‘rock star’ track down to children)
Narrator: (Applauding) Wow! That’s some voice you’ve got!
Child 5: Well, thank you. But it wouldn’t mean anything to me unless I could share it with my fans!
(Exit Child 5)
(Enter Child 6, writing)
(Narrator walks over to Child 6, who gives notebook to him/her to read)
Narrator: Wow! How did you come up with all these ideas? What a story!
Child 6: Thank you. And it’s the fact I can share it with all my hundreds of thousands of readers that makes it so special to me.
(Exit Child 6)
Child 7: But we’re not of course suggesting we can all be rock stars or famous authors!
Child 8: Some of us, despite huge talent, may reach a much smaller audience.
Child 9: Fame isn’t everything and it is only the tiny minority that achieve it.
Child 10: Which isn’t to say we shouldn’t all strive to make the very most of whatever gift we possess.
Narrator: Ah! I see! (Pauses) By ‘gift’ you mean ‘talent’?
Child 11: That’s right! And we all have our very own special talent – even if it doesn’t bring us fame and riches!
Child 12: (Grunting and pulling a face) Hmm. That’s a shame! Now that would give me far more of an incentive!
Child 13: But it shouldn’t! It should be joy enough just discovering that gift!
Child 14: True! And that’s the hardest part! Sometimes we’re not even aware of the fact we have a gift!
Narrator: Which is where teachers come in! Big cheer for our teachers!
(Whole cast cheers)
Child 15: (Holding up Art work) I’d never have known I could paint if it hadn’t been for my Art teacher!
Child 16: (Holding up poem) I’d never have known I could write poetry if it hadn’t been for my English teacher!
