Reading Assembly or class play Sample Text:

Narrator:         Well, I guess that’s the wonderful thing about books and stories. (Pauses) Anything can happen!

Child 12:          (Yawning and hugging him/herself) But sometimes it’s nice to feel cuddled.

Narrator:         Pardon?

Child 12:          (Holding up book) In my book, Little Bear Can’t Sleep.

Narrator:         Oh dear! That’s not good. But did he get to sleep in the end?

Child 12:          Oh yes. Thanks to Big Bear. He was very patient!

Narrator:         And kind.

Child 13:          Like Dave’s sister Bella! She helped Dave get his favourite toy, Dogger, back, when Dogger got lost!

Narrator:         Ah! (Wiping eyes) Oh dear! You’re going to set me off again!

Child 13:          Well, favourite toys are very special.

Narrator:         They are indeed.

(Optional burst of song Wild Thing by The Troggs; or sound of wild shouting and whooping)

(At this stage in the assembly, the cast could all become ‘Wild Things’ with just Child 14 ‘normal’, as Max in the story)

Narrator:         (Blowing whistle) Stop! Order! What on earth is going on?

Child 14:          Sorry. My fault.

Narrator:         Ah yes. Your choice was Where the Wild Things Are, right?

(Child 14 nods)

Narrator:         Well, can I just say (glaring at cast) – NOT HERE! That kind of wildness is (pauses) well, for somewhere else! Certainly not here in my assembly!

(Whole cast moans and sits down quietly)

Narrator:         (Apologetically) I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be a kill-joy. But we have got some other books to look at, haven’t we?
