Awe and Wonder Assembly

This class play is on the awesome world of nature including ‘7 plus’ Wonders of the Natural World.

Putting the WOW factor back into our lives proves a bit of a challenge for this particular set of children – that is, trying to impress the ‘awe-full-not’ teacher who is taking the assembly!

Cast of 30 (easily adaptable up or down)

Duration - around 15 minutes not including music suggestions

This Key Stage II script is the first in a series of Awe and Wonder Assemblies – the second one being on Man Made Wonders – loosely based on the Seven Wonders of the World but probably with a lot more thrown in! There will be ‘parallel’ simpler scripts for Key Stage I children on this theme.

Sample Text

Music 1 Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

(Whole cast files in, in order of speaking, seating themselves along two rows of 15, facing the audience; the narrator stands to one side throughout)

Narrator:             Good morning and

(Whole cast gasps in unison)

(Narrator turns in alarm)

Narrator:             What’s wrong?

Child 1:                 (Surprised) Wrong? Who said anything about there being anything wrong?

Child 2:                 Everything is

Whole cast:        (Shouting together) Awesome!

Child 3:                 Sorry to alarm you! We were just expressing ‘awe’!

Child 4:                 Awe and wonder, to be precise!

(Narrator studies notes)

Narrator:             Well, that is the name of today’s assembly!

                                (To cast) Seems like you all got a head start on me!

Child 5:                 Well, we are all a little younger than you, sir! No offence!

(Child 6 digs Child 5 in the ribs)

Child 6:                 (Hissing to Child 5) Careful! You know how sensitive adults are about their age!

Narrator:             (Coughing) Not at all! And what’s age got to do with anything, anyway?

Child 7:                 Everything! You adults see everything in a totally different light!

Narrator:             What do you mean?

Child 8:                 Well, let’s just say, you, er, em, …

Narrator:             (Impatiently) Spit it out!

Child 8:                 Well, you just …

Narrator:             I’m waiting!

Child 9:                 (To Child 8) Oh come on! Tell him as it is!

Child 8:                 Awkward!

Narrator:             I’ll give you awkward if you can’t just tell me the truth!

Child 10:               Oh,let me say it for you! We’ve all noticed that adults tend to lose their sense of awe – in some cases have lost it, altogether!

Narrator:             (Exploding) Lose their sense of awe? I hope you’re not including me in this category?

Child 11:               Well,

Narrator:             (Interrupting) Well, nothing! I’m full of awe!

Child 11:               Does that make you, awe-full, sir?

(Whole cast falls about laughing)

Narrator:             (Huffily) Now, now, children – a little repect

(To audience) You’ve heard what people say about never working with children? They’re right!

(To cast) Now then. I think the adjective you were looking for was ‘awesome’, correct?

(Whole cast mutters agreement)

Narrator:             So. Let us make sure this assembly is (pauses) awesome! What have you got for me?

Child 12:               Well, we thought we’d start with all the most awesome places in the world.

Child 13:               Aside from our school, of course!

Narrator:             (Smiling) Of course!

Child 14:               So, what about

(Each child in turn holds up a picture of the place they are describing)

Child 14:               This great lump of rock!

Narrator:             Great lump of rock? What’s so awesome about that?

Child 14:               (Indignantly, to Child 10) What were you saying about adults? This lump of rock just happens to be Uluru – otherwise known as Ayer’s Rock, in Australia.

Narrator:             Well, it does have a pretty amazing colour.

Child 14:               Red sandstone! Formed six hundred million years ago!

Narrator:             Wow!

(Whole cast cheers)

Child 10:               Wow! We got a wow!

Narrator:             Well, I’m not that hard to impress!

Child 14:               Difficult not to be impressed by the world’s biggest monolith – that’s a single rock, by the way!

Narrator:             Yes, yes. I knew that!

Child 14:               And that it’s some nine kilometres in circumference?

Narrator:             Hmm. Of course! I am a teacher, you know!

Child 15:               Well. What about this. The Grand Canyon!

Narrator:             More rocks?

Child 15:               (Indignantly) Yes but these rocks form one of the deepest gorges on Earth!
