Winter Assembly for Key Stage One
Cast of 30 – easily adaptable up or down
Duration: Around 10 – 15 minutes. This length can be extended by the addition of suggested poems.
Brrrr! …. surely there's a bit more to be said about winter than this?! Well, if left to our cast it would just be the sound of snoring – any excuse to follow the lead of that hibernating hedgehog. Fortunately, you can always rely on a bit of Disney to revive flagging spirits – plus some snowball fights and a few words from our rockin robin!
This is one of a set of plays on The Seasons – all available as separate purchases.
(Enter group of children all dressed in winter clothes)

Child 23 – 27: Warm woolly coats to keep us warm!
(Exit group of children)
Narrator: Hmm! Warm and woolly seems to work!
Music 5 Rockin Robin – Michael Jackson
(Enter Robin/Child 28 dancing to song that is sung by rest of the cast)
Narrator: (Applauding) Well, that was very upbeat!
(To robin) You don’t seem to have any problems with the cold weather!
Robin: Well, it’s not always easy, you know! And I am always grateful to those kind people that leave me food out in their gardens!
Narrator: Well, you are our favourite national bird
Robin: And those Christmas cards just wouldn’t be the same without me, right?
(Sound of loud snoring, from the cast)
Narrator: Hey! What’s going on?
Music 6 All I have to do is dream – Everly Brothers
(Optional excerpt – first couple of bars)
(Enter very sleepy hedgehog/Child 29)
Hedgehog: (Rubbing eyes) Oh! Where’s my bed? I must have sleepwalked off, by mistake!
