Year 1 class assembly

Discussion in 'Primary' started by julieroberts, Mar 6, 2010.

  1. My Year 1 class has got to do a class assembly in a few weeks. I don't want to spend ages practising for it but still want it to look half decent. Year groups with older children in always seem to do a brilliant job as their children are able to read or are keen to learn lots of words. Does anyone have any good ideas for what I can do can do with my Year 1's? Our topic is plants so I was thinking of linking it to that but have only managed to come up with a few songs and showing some paintings!
    Any ideas would be grately appreciated.
  2. Act out Jack and the Beanstalk?
    My Year 1's each said a sentence and sang 4 songs together. We also acted out a story. The assembly was about 15-20 minutes long.
    Good luck, hope it goes well and the children have lots of fun!

    I usually end up doing a plant assembly in the summer term. We make big signs for the things plants need to grow and explain each thing and show plants we have grown without water/light etc. We talk about the parts of the plant and what they do. We show different parts of the plant that we eat eg leaves (lettuce), roots (carrots) etc. We learn a rhyme and do actions 'Curl up small your a tiny seed' and sing the song 'Plant a little seed' We show seeds from plants.
    I've probably got a script saved somewhere if you want me to e-mail you it - its basically based around the work we do in science.
    Landofla, Alicemobley and neddyfonk like this.
  4. Hi comenius,

    I've got a year one class too. The problem is, a lot of them are too quiet and once the rest of the school can't hear them, they tend to switch off...
    For the past couple of assemblies I have recorded the children and made a DVD using movie maker. It sometimes takes a few goes but with some careful editing the children are all able to speak and be heard!!! It has meant that the children all take part and they've also been able to have a DVD to keep forever!!!!! The editing takes a while, depending on how good you are with the program.
    My last assembly took about 4 hours to video (in total, not all in one go!) and about 2 hours to edit.
    Hope that helps!
  7. Hi,

    I was wondering if you still have a copy of that script that you could possibly email me.

    Many thanks,
