Second World War School Assembly or Class Play
Second World War School Assembly or Class Play. What was the Blitz? What was it like to be an evacuee? What did Morrisons have to do with bomb shelters? Why did Americans call the first 6 months the ‘phoney war’?
(Also available, set of 5 guided reading play scripts, with quizzes – Background/Beginnings of War, The Course of the War, Evacuation, the Blitz and War-time Life/Rationing – see Guided Reading Section; plus a collection of First World War scripts – Remembrance Day Assembly, First World War Assembly and First World War Poets Assembly)
Please note: The script is available in word document format on the purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the classroom but as an assembly in front of a non-paying audience, you need to buy a single Performance Rights Certificate to cover you for the play you are purchasing.
Second World War or World War II Assembly
Evacuee 5: I was lucky. Although I got separated from my brother, I was looked after by a very kind couple .. and didn’t want to go back to the grimy old city I’d left.
Evacuee 1:I was so homesick. But my Mum said she could only visit once a month.
Evacuee 2: I wanted to go home too. But it was for our own safety.
(All walk off. The sound of bombs and air raid siren. Air Raid Warden rushes on).
Warden: (grabbing child): Quick! It’s an air raid! If you’re not quick, you’re dead! Get yourself into a shelter now!
Narrator: Yes, once those sirens went on, you really didn’t want to be out in the open. Best be (pointing at 2 adults and 2 children under the table) snuggled together, indoors, under your Morrisons Shelter.
Mum (brandishing Morrison’s bag).
