English Festival - Scripts and Powerpoint Backdrops

I would love to be cheeky and keep all these to myself but I figure I'll be happier knowing other teachers can use them!

So, we are up to our English festival at the moment and we decided that we would try to make the English festival relate to our lessons as this would mean that the students are still revising and more importantly - they already know the dialogue. I am speaking specifically about our drama section of the show however, the songs we are doing are also what we've already taught! :D

So here are the scripts and lessons they relate too as well as the download link to the PowerPoint shows you can use as backdrops for the performances! I wrote them based on fairy tales/ famous stories but made them all with the textbook dialogue in mind!

I only teach grade 5 and 6 from these textbooks:
Grade 6, publisher/author: 천재교육 (Cheonjae), Frances Sohn. (The blue one!) and for Grade 5 the same publisher and author - the orange book!

So here are the scripts, with download links to their matching powerpoint show!
You can of course adjust them if you have the same topic but different vocabulary !

Also, I would soooo recommend using these scripts for a cool revision lesson if you've already done your festival. Drama and English are a fantastic duo that can make for some fantastic, fun learning!

Grade 5 dramas:

Story: Happy Birthday Moon - based on book by Frank ASCH 

Textbook Topic: When is your birthday?

NARRATOR:        One night Bear looked up at the sky and thought.
                                It would be nice to give the moon a birthday present!
                                But he didn’t know when the moon’s birthday was.
                                He climbed a tree to get closer to the moon.
                                He wanted to ask the moon when her birthday was.
BEAR:                    Hello!
NARRATOR:        Bear’s voice echoed across the mountain and Bear got very excited. He thought the                       echo was the Moon talking to him!
BEAR:                    Oh My God. I’m talking to the Moon.
                                Tell me. When is your birthday?!
NARRATOR:        Tell me. When is your birthday?! The mountains echoed.
BEAR:                    It’s tomorrow! It’s on June 21st!
NARRATOR:        It’s tomorrow! It’s on June 21st! The mountains echoed again.
BEAR:                    Wow! You have the same birthday!
NARRATOR:        Wow! You have the same birthday! The mountain echoed.
                                Bear jumped in excitement.
BEAR:                    So, what do you want for your birthday?!
NARRATOR:        Again, the mountain echoed “So, what do you want for your birthday?!”
                                Bear thought for a moment.
BEAR:                    hmmm…
                                I would like a hat!
NARRATOR:        I would like a hat! Echoed the mountain.
BEAR:                    Oh good.
NARRATOR:        “Goodbye!” The mountains echoed. And Bear walked home.
Then he went downtown to the hat shop.
He bought the Moon a beautiful hat.
Bear put the hat up high, on top of a tree where the moon could find it.
Then he watched and waited slowly.
The Moon reached the hat and it looked like she was wearing it.
Bear was so happy.
BEAR:                    Hurray! It fits you perfectly!
NARRATOR:        In the night when Bear was sleeping the wind made the hat fall out of the tree.
                                The hat landed in front of Bear’s house, outside his door.
BEAR:                    Oh wow! It’s beautiful. The Moon bought me a hat for my birthday too!
NARRATOR:        Bear put on the hat and was very happy.
NARRATOR:        But then the wind blew Bear’s hat off his head. He chased it, but it got away.
BEAR:                    Hello!
NARRATOR:        Hello! Echoed the mountain.
BEAR:                    I lost the beautiful hat you gave me.
NARRATOR:        I lost the beautiful hat you gave me. Echoed the mountain.
BEAR:                    That’s okay. I still love you!
NARRATOR:        That’s okay. I still love you! Echoed the mountain.
BEAR:                    Happy Birthday!                              
NARRATOR:        Happy Birthday!
