Duration

Around 10 minutes reading time but this can, of course, be expanded, to allow more performance.

Of the four assemblies/class plays (see below) this first one is the simplest and shortest – written for lower Key Stage I as reflected in the very short simple lines given to each character. If the teacher, who takes the role of narrator throughout all 21 tales (all 4 parts), wishes to release some of his/her lines to the more able/more confident in the class and add further text from the tales, then that is, of course, down to the teacher in charge. The idea of these scripts is to provide a template that can be edited according to the ability of the children.
