Description

Changes in Britain from Stone Age to Iron Age Assembly

* IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE PURCHASE OF SCRIPT!

This script was written for LOWER KEY STAGE II i.e. YEARS 3 & 4.

If you want a script for Years 5/6 you need to buy the other script entitled Stone Age to Iron Age Britain Assembly

...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

It is a much shorter script - half the length of the previously released Stone Age to Iron Age Assembly and the reading parts are smaller. To judge which would best suit your class, take a look at both sample scripts on the website - if you need a larger sample let me know or give me a ring and I can advise you.

Normally I have a year group in mind and I just write the one script per subject. But with the new curriculum it's a little less specific so I will try and write for both Upper and Lower Key Stage II. i.e. two separate scripts. In the case of the Stone Age, the script entitled Changes in Britain From the Stone Age ot the Iron Age is for lower Key Stage II (this one); Stone Age to Iron Age Assembly (picture of stone age man) is for upper Key Stage II - it's double the length - though I think the script is easy enough for younger children to cope with. Sample scripts are indicative of level of reading required. 

Scroll down to purchase script and performing rights certificate

Please note: The script is available in word document format on purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the class room 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.

Cast of 30 (easily adaptable up or down)

Duration: Around 10 minutes not including music suggestions.

Sample Text:

Hunter Gatherer:       It was a bit cold! But when things started warming up a bit life became a lot easier. And I was pretty good at my hunting by then!

(Hunter Gatherer mimes throwing a spear)

Narrator:                     Wow! No wonder those woolly mammoths became extinct!

(Woolly Mammoth lets out a squeal and all cast of Ice Age run off stage, with Hunter Gatherer in hot pursuit)

Narrator:                     So then what did they eat?  

(Enter Farmers singing)

Music 4:                      We Plough the Field and Scatter

Farmer 1:                    Look at our grass!

Narrator:                     (Gasping) Grass? You ate grass?

Farmer 2:                    You call it wheat and barley! And we got very good at growing it.

Child 8:                       This was a huge change!

(Child with Change banner waves it briefly on stage)

Child 8:                       It meant no more chasing animals.

Farmer 1:                    Cereal crops are much better behaved! They don’t run away!

Child 8:                       So people could settle and live in villages.

Farmer 2:                    But we had to get better at producing more food, like the Ancient Egyptians!

Farmer 1:                    In Ancient Egypt they used irrigation

Farmer 2:                    Those Ancient Egyptians were pretty advanced for their time!

(Enter Villagers from Skara Brae)

Villager 1:                    Actually, we built our settlement at Skara Brae in Scotland before the Egyptian pyramids were built!

Villager 2:                    Our houses had stone walls and roofs made from turf and whalebone!

Villager 1:                    We had furniture

Villager 2:                    And even flushing toilets!

Narrator:                     (Astonished) Flushing toilets?

Villager 2:                    Well, flushed by streams, that is!

(Exit Villagers 1 and 2)

Narrator:                     Flushing toilets, indeed! Now that’s progress! But with a growing population, things had to get better – to feed more people.

Farmer 2:                    In Europe they invented the plough

Farmer 1:                    So much better at breaking up the ground!

Farmer 2:                    More crops, more people fed!

(Exit Farmers)

(Enter two swordsmen, fighting)

Narrator:                     Oh oh! Course there’s always that downside to more people surviving and living together.

(Two swordsmen stop fighting briefly and face audience)

Swordsman 1 & 2:      They fall out!

(Swordsmen start fighting again)
