World Book Day Assembly

Discussion in 'Primary' started by cocopop77, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. For World Book Day, we encourage the children and staff to come dressed as a fictional book character. In the past, we have had each class come to the front of the hall so everyone can see their costumes and a selected panel of staff members then choose 2 children to be winners for their costumes, getting a prize of a book.
    This year, we are again encouraging children to come dressed as book characters and will be having prizes for each class, but I was looking for other ideas to organise the assembly. I sometimes feel, with each class parading at the front of the hall, things drag on and especially the younger children get quite restless. Any suggestions that have worked for others?

    Instead of parading, could the children be asked to move into genre groups - big posters in the four corners of the room (more points if necessary) with genre heading to guide them - that'll make 'em think!
