Today, Mrs Pinder’s class performed the most amazing assembly based on the story The Day The Crayons Quit.
First, Duncan received lots of letters from his colouring crayons. All of the crayons read their letters out loud to us and everyone had a little giggle when peach crayon had her cheeky speech which said, ”Duncan, why did you take my wrapping off ? Now I’m too embarrassed to come out of the crayola box because I’m naked and I don’t have any underwear!”
They went on to act out the rest of the story before finishing off by singing happy, by Farrell, and every colour under the sky. Their singing was so joyful that a lot of people sang along to the lyrics.
Everyone really enjoyed it and would love to see the assembly again!
This afternoon, 2P gave us a brilliant assembly, all about ‘Together We Can’, (the school motto) and how they had been working together in different activities as a class, and helping each other do everything they needed to do. They thought about the time they work together in school, in every subject like science, maths and art, and that working as a team sometimes can be fun and helpful too.
They also told us about the book they had been reading, which was called The Day The Crayons Quit, and how all the crayons were very unhappy, until they started to work as a team to create beautiful, and brightly coloured pictures! Some of the children dressed up as the crayons, looking fantastic, and acted out how the crayons would feel, and that they felt they weren’t getting used enough, and wanted their colours to be shown off more! During art day, Year 2 had created a huge piece of artwork using brightly coloured inks and graphite, working together, and the outcome was amazing, all different textures and colours and patterns, which also symbolised how they had done it together, as a team to make something beautiful and brilliant, while enjoying doing it!
To finish off their fantastic performance, the children sang a fun song about being kind and helpful to eachother, and that it doesn’t take a lot to brighten someones day! Well done 2P!
