School Leavers: How to have the best Year 6 leavers’ assembly
A Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly can be a very emotional time, with children having to say goodbye to their teachers and friends as they prepare to join secondary school. We want to ensure that their Leavers Assembly is a memorable and happy affair, which is why we have compiled a list of creative, fun and inclusive activities which are guaranteed to entertain.
Fantastic Ideas for a Fun-Filled School Leavers’ Assembly
What better way to say goodbye than for pupils to work together and produce a leavers’ play that they can be proud of? Out of the Ark supply a fantastic range of School Musicals which would be perfect to include in any Leavers’ Assembly. Plays are a great way of getting everyone involved and can also provide excellent entertainment for the audience.
Awards acknowledge and celebrate the students who have really applied themselves in the classroom, or participated within charities or the community. However, at a Leaver’s Assembly these awards assemblies can also be a fun and inclusive event, with more light-hearted awards such as “Bookworm” and “Homework Hero”.
If you’re looking to try something a bit different then why not switch things up and let the children present the teachers with awards? Or you could even take it a step further and allow students to award their peers with certificates and prizes.
If you don’t have the time or resources to stage a leavers’ play, then leavers’ songs are a must. Out of the Ark supply a fantastic selection of songs which are perfect for these assemblies and provide fantastic entertainment for both the audience and the singers. Personal favourites of ours include “Leavers’ Song” and “Moving On”.
Filled with the best stories from the year, speeches from favourite teachers and funny messages from the children, leavers’ videos are always a safe bet for any School Leavers’ Assembly.
Mini Talent Shows
Although a full blown talent show may be difficult to incorporate into an assembly, including some special performances can give pupils the chance to shine and create lifelong memories. Kids that want to try their hand at a short stand-up comedy routine or showcase their musical skills can have the opportunity to perform in front of their peers. This offers a great way to break up the assembly, lighten the mood and provide some different entertainment for the audience.
