Product Description
New Year Class Play based on Character - What it Takes to Be Good!
Cast Size Written for a class of 30 but this number can be easily adapted up or down.
Duration: Around 10 - 15 minutes reading time (not including music)
This assembly is a class appraisal of one of their mates - needless to say, a very popular, much loved one! It deals with 'what qualities maketh the man' - or boy in this case; though that is not to say a girl cannot, of course, equally be put forward as a class role model!
In addition to this 'list' of positive character traits, there are also a selection of quotations - and the optional inclusion of If - Rudyard Kipling with the suggestion that this poem be adapted to the qualities covered in the assembly.
There is a Christmas version of this script; and a general PSHE one - both available off in Christmas and PSHE Assembly sections (available off TpT soon, time permitting)
Sample Text:
Music 1 Proud – Heather Small
Class Teacher: (To Class) Well children! Good morning and Happy New Year! You’ll be pleased to hear I have a delightful little task for you this morning – just to set us up nicely for the year ahead!
(To Child 1) So I need you
(Turns to whole cast) And the rest of you
To think about what makes a good person!
Children 1 – 29: (Together) What?
Class Teacher: OK. Let me explain. If you were to create the perfect person – a real role model for the rest of the world – what qualities would they have?
Child 1: Easy! To be just like me!
(Whole cast laughs)
Class Teacher: (Tutting) Now, really! A bit of seriousness, please. After all, I am trying to turn you all into model citizens, here!
Child 2: Whoa! You’ve got your work cut out with this lot, Miss!
Class Teacher: (Muttering) Hmm. You might just have a point there! But no! I won’t be put off! I’m sure every one of you today can come up with something simply splendid!
(To Child 1) Have another go!
Child 1: Ummm
Class Teacher: Oh come along! Just one! Surely you can manage that!
Child 1: (Looking at rest of cast) I know! Having lots of friends!
(Whole cast cheers)
Class Teacher: OK. Let’s work on that.
(To rest of cast) Ask yourselves the question, why do you all like him?
Child 2: He makes us laugh!
Child 3: He’s always positive. Always looking on the bright side!
Child 4: He always has something nice to say – either a compliment or something reassuring if I’m worried about something.
Child 5: Yes, he’s always full of good advice. And yet, he still finds time to listen to your point of view.
Child 6: He’s smart enough to know he’s not always right.
Child 7: And strong enough to say sorry when he gets it wrong.
Child 8: But he’s no push over. He knows his own mind and if he believes strongly in something, nothing and nobody will stop him from speaking out.
Child 9: Yes, he’s certainly pretty brave. I’ve seen him stand up to bullies twice his size!
Child 10: You know you can always rely on Toby!
