Seaside Assembly – based on Unit 4 Geography: Going to the Seaside and *Unit 3 History: What were seaside holidays like in the past?
This assembly takes us from the classroom, onto the coach, to the seaside – and back again! Granny and Grandpa Brown provide us with some insights into ‘trips to the seaside in their time’. And there is the usual smattering of great songs … and extremely bad jokes!
If you’re planning a trip to the seaside, jump on board this one for some useful tips!
*As I have combined two units, this script is a little longer than the original one I wrote. If this one proves too long, I am happy to provide the shorter original one FREE
Cast of 30: Teacher, Class plus ‘helpers’ – in case of Grandpa Brown, not entirely clear who is helping who!
Duration: Around 15 – 20 minutes including music suggestions.
Child 17 (boy): Sharks!
(Some of the girls start screaming)
Teacher: Stop! Enough, boys! (To girls) They’re just teasing! Nothing for you to worry about! And you won’t be going anywhere near the sea anyway. Why is that?
Child 18: Coz it’s too cold, this time of year, Sir?
Child 19: Coz you forgot your swimming trunks, Sir?
Teacher: (Impatiently) No, no. Nothing like that! Think ‘safety’, children!
Child 20: There could be nasty strong currents, sir!
Grandpa Brown: Currants? Mmm! And raisins? Oh, yes please. I am feeling a little peckish!
Teacher: (Clutching head in exasperation) No, currents as in moving water!
(To Child 20) You’re right! We have to be careful not to go in the water
Child 21: Because of sharks?
(Girls start screaming again)
