World Teachers Day Play

Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for download.

This short play was written as a 'thank you' to all the world's teachers. With the addition of music and humor, it identifies what makes a good teacher and why this is such an amazing profession to be in.

I always include suggested music in my scripts to give a lift to the performance but it can easily be left out if preferred. The music I have chosen for this plays is as follows:

1. Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd. The play starts with children singing 'We don't need no education' in very down-beat mode.

2. Substitute - The Who. The mood is changed quite dramatically by the appearance of Miss Scarlett - a 'sub'/supply teacher with a difference!

3. Teacher I Need You - Elton John. The play ends on a euphoric note, the children having realised how lucky they are to have the teacher they have! This last song is optional - the last verses are not 'appropriate', but I think the first two are fun and fine - but inclusion can be left to discretion of teacher (real one!)

Extract from Play:


Teacher:                                              Miss Gray - ‘old fashioned' model

Substitute/Supply Teacher:         Miss Scarlett - ‘latest fashion' model

Children 1 - 25

Music 1 Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd (We don't need no education)

(Class drag themselves to seats, looking distinctly bored and fed up)

(Enter teacher, Miss Gray)

Miss Gray:           Hey! What's going on here? Why the long faces?

Child 1:                 Do you really have to ask? It's because

All:                          (Together) We're at school!

Miss Gray:           Well, that really is no way to start the day. And especially today - when I'm out on a course.

Child 2:                 So who's going to look after us?

Music 2 Substitute - The Who

(‘Substitute/Supply' Teacher, Miss Scarlett, in high heels, walks onto stage - children all gasp)

Miss Gray:           Oh, so you must be ..

Miss Scarlett:     (Peeling off elegant elbow length gloves) Miss Scarlett.

                                (Turning to children) Your *supply teacher for the day.

Child 3:                 Wow! This could be ..... different!

Miss Scarlett:     (Rounding on Child 3) What was that?

Child 3:                 (Quivering) Er, nothing, miss!

Miss Scarlett:     Miss Scarlett! The name's Miss Scarlett!

                                (Turning to Miss Gray)

                                Hmm.  I can see I'm going to have my work cut out with this lot, today!

*supply may be replaced by substitute for US readers

Miss Gray:           Well, I can see Miss Scarlett here is going to take no nonsense from anybody here today! I'm afraid I must go. I will be back later on to see how everything's going ...

 (Exit Miss Gray)

Miss Scarlett:  So. What do we start off with?

Child 4:            It's usually Literacy, miss.

Miss Scarlett:  (Exploding) Miss Scarlett! How many more times do you need to be told? Let's have you all getting on with this work

(Passes round sheets)

with absolutely no fuss.

(All reluctantly pick up sheets and start reading)

Child 5:            But miss! I don't understand!

Child 6:            That's Johnny, miss. He always needs a little help from the teacher.

Miss Scarlett:  Not today, I'm afraid! Now. Heads down, everybody! It's not hard. All I want from you is a list of

All:                   (Questioning) What makes a good teacher?

Miss Scarlett:  Just so! And if you want any time in the playground, before lunch, I suggest you get on with it.  

Child 5:            (Wailing) But miss ....

Miss Scarlett:  No ‘buts'. Get on with your work.

Child 7:            (Holding up banner with words ‘ LATER ON THAT DAY')

(Enter Miss Gray. Exchanges a few brief words with Miss Scarlett, who then exits)

(All children sit upright, beaming with pleasure)

Miss Gray:       Ah children!

All:                   (Ecstatically) Ah Miss Gray!

Miss Gray:       Well! That's more like it! I see Miss Scarlett has worked some kind of magic on you!

Child 8:            You can say that again!

Miss Gray:       So, let me see what you've been doing.

Child 9:            We had to write about ‘What makes a good teacher'.

Child 10:          And this is what we came up with.

(Each stands up in turn, reading out what they have written)

Child 11:          A good teacher lights up the room with her presence!

Child 12:          A good teacher has infinite patience and a kind word for everyone.

Child 13:          A good teacher loves her pupils, even when they are challenging.
