Seaside Assembly - based on Unit 4 Geography: Going to the Seaside
*Unit 3 History: What were seaside holidays like in the past?
Cast of 30: Teacher, Class plus 'helpers' - in case of Grandpa Brown, not entirely clear who is helping who!
Duration: Around 15 - 20 minutes including music suggestions.
This assembly takes us from the classroom, onto the coach, to the seaside - and back again! Granny and Grandpa Brown provide us with some insights into 'trips to the seaside in their time'. And there is the usual smattering of great songs ... and extremely bad jokes!
If you're planning a trip to the seaside, jump on board this one for some useful tips!
*As I have combined two units, this script is a little longer than the original one I wrote. If this one proves too long, I am happy to provide the shorter original one FREE
Child 17 (boy): Sharks!
(Some of the girls start screaming)
Teacher: Stop! Enough, boys! (To girls) They’re just teasing! Nothing for you to worry about! And you won’t be going anywhere near the sea anyway. Why is that?
Child 18: Coz it’s too cold, this time of year, Sir?
Child 19: Coz you forgot your swimming trunks, Sir?
Teacher: (Impatiently) No, no. Nothing like that! Think ‘safety’, children!
Child 20: There could be nasty strong currents, sir!
Grandpa Brown: Currants? Mmm! And raisins? Oh, yes please. I am feeling a little peckish!
Teacher: (Clutching head in exasperation) No, currents as in moving water!
(To Child 20) You’re right! We have to be careful not to go in the water
Child 21: Because of sharks?
(Girls start screaming again)
Teacher: No, no, no! No sharks! We’ll be staying on the beach
