This assembly or class play was written for Key Stage I (5 – 7 year olds) - the part of the narrator taken by the Class Teacher.
Other Character Assemblies, Key Stage I & II, are available from writer, Sue Russell.
References in the text (see sample below) to ‘football’ and such teams as Chelsea and Arsenal can easily be substituted with U.S. equivalents, if necessary!
Goldilocks: Help! Help! Save me from these vicious bears!
Mummy Bear: (Retorting angrily) Vicious bears?
Daddy Bear: (Laughing) Who? Us?
Baby Bear: We’re the victims here, not her!
Narrator: Aha! Goldilocks and the Three Bears! Now that’s an interesting tale!
Mummy: One of burglary
Daddy Bear: Break in
Baby Bear: And vandalism!
Goldilocks: Oops! That bad?
All three bears: (Together, nodding) That bad!
Narrator: Oh dear! So not only have we a total lack of respect for people
Narrator: No difference! Don’t go making things worse for yourself, young lady!
Mummy Bear: Quite! Who ever heard such cheek?
Narrator: I repeat. Not only have we a total lack of respect for people (pauses) .. and bears! But a lack of respect for other’s property as well!
(Whole cast gasps in shock)
Goldilocks: (To Bears) I’m so sorry! I should never have walked into your home
Mummy Bear: Or eaten our food
Baby Bear: Or sat on our furniture
Daddy Bear: Or slept on our beds.
Goldilocks: I am so sorry. I’ll never do it again!
(Exit Goldilocks and the Three Bears, smiling at each other)
Narrator: Well, there’s a happy ending!
Child 1: But it’s very easy to go wrong! To forget that respect thing. We do need reminding of some important facts.
Child 2: Everyone is different.
Child 3: We all look different
Child 4: We all like different things
Child 5: I like running!
Child 6: I like football!
Child 7: I like reading a book!
Narrator: And that’s fine. Nothing wrong with having these differences!
Child 8: Our world would be so boring if everyone was the same!
Child 9: It doesn’t matter
Child 10: If you support Chelsea!
Child 11: Or Arsenal!
