Chocolate Class Play or Assembly
Cast of 30 though easily adaptable up or down.
Duration around 15 - 20 minutes.
Please note! This script was written by an English person so the choice of chocolates is dictated by what is in the shops in England i.e. predominantly Cadburys, Nestles and Mars products. If the script is to be used in an American school you will need to substitute the English product names for American ones i.e. what are sold in U.S. stores – apologies for this though this should be a fairly easy exercise and quite fun/interesting to do, comparing the two!
There are two versions of this class play available – one for younger children (5 – 7 year olds – also available off the website); and this one which is suitable for children aged 7 – 11 years old. This is because there is more factual content and thus the reading content is more challenging.
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/lower school subjects - this great challenge rewarded by a generous dose of .... you've guessed! Chocolate!
I'm guessing of all my assemblies this one will go down best with both cast and audience!
Don't miss out!
Child 2: (To Head) And I believe you have a box or two, hidden away, for your staff?
(Head turns to Music Teacher)
Head: Oops! It seems our secret is out!
Child 2: No secret! We only had to look at all the weight our teachers were putting on!
(Head reluctantly hands box of Roses chocolates to Child 2)
Child 2: Thank you! Ah! (Rubbing tummy) That’s better!
