Chocolate Assembly adapted for Easter
This assembly is for teachers who have studied chocolate as a theme with their children and wish to combine this with some Easter eggs!
The content is the same as for the Chocolate Assembly but with the addition of Easter eggs and some very bad jokes (20 in fact).
Cast of 30 though easily adaptable up or down.
Duration around 15 – 20 minutes.
This script on Chocolate covers all subjects of the curriculum i.e. it's a class theme. And how can it not be a popular one when there are so many of everyone's favourite indulgence in it – CHOCOLATES!
While covering a few of these (make that 32 – and that doesn't cover the box contents!) there is ample coverage of chocolate's 2,000 year old history – way back to the ancient Mayan culture, .. and not forgetting the amazing Mr Cadbury of course!
As chocolate is 'the class theme' there are cross curricular links – covering all primary school subjects – this great challenge rewarded by a generous dose of …. you've guessed! Chocolate!
