Sharing Assembly for Schools Key Stage One
Sharing Assembly for Schools Key Stage One is a class play that explores and demonstrates why it is so much better to share than to hoard and guzzle! And whilst It’s always useful to have a fairy godmother around to grant us a wish, mind you’re careful of what you wish for – it might not be such a treat after all! Luckily bad wishes can be made good – with a little generosity of spirit – which is, after all, what sharing is all about.
Cast of 18 – easily adaptable up or down. Duration – around 15 minutes
Music 2 : Sugar Honey Honey – The Archies
Narrator: (Pointing to children ‘guzzling’ whilst rest of cast look on angrily) Well, they seem happy enough. It’s a shame that doesn’t include everyone.
Child 9: Hey! That’s not fair!
Child 10: I want a candy!
Child 11: What about the rest of us?
Child 12: We like candies too!
Child 13: Why should they have all those candies?
Child 14: It’s not fair!
(Remaining children stand up)
Children 15 – 18: (Shouting) It’s not fair!
(As whole assembly erupts into chaos, the Fairy Godmother, Child 8, steps forward, flicks her magic wand and everyone, apart from Narrator, ‘freezes’ and there is total silence)
Child 8: Ah! That’s better! Oh dear, the trouble this wish business can get me into!
Narrator: I’ll say! But let’s just see what happens next!
(To Child 8) Just ‘unfreeze’ those with the candies, please.
(Children with candies, sitting around, eating)
(All of them start to look ‘uncomfortable’, clutching either their stomachs or their cheeks/jaws)
Child 1: (Moaning) I’m not feeling so good.
