                            They’re on their way!

 

Verse 1         Let’s get tidying our classrooms till they sparkle,

                            Put back up displays we just took down.

                            Get it right, or crash and burn!

7. This Special Place - with vocals.mp3

Verse 1            How fast the years seem to fly,

                                 They pass in the blink of an eye.

                                 And yet we’ve filled the time with

                                 So much joy and laughter

                                 And made some good friends on the way,

                                 On the way.

 

Chorus            When I’m old and grey and looking

                         Back upon my days,

                                 In my mind my book of life

                                 Lies open at this page.

                                 And as I’m reading every line,

                                 A smile upon my face,

                                 I will recall the best of times

                                 I’ve known in this special place.

                                

Verse 2            You taught all I needed to know,

                                 You gave all I needed to grow.

                                 And as I fly away

                                 To start a new adventure,

                                 You are the one who gave me wings,

                                 Gave me wings.

 

Chorus            When I’m old and grey…..

 

Repeat chorus   When I’m old and grey…..

5. Rounders - with vocals.mp3

Verse 1            Each girl and boy is jumping for joy,

                                 ‘Cause we’re gonna play rounders today!

                                 Nothing can beat our favourite treat –

                                 To get the whole class out on the grass!

                                 What a perfect game, puts the rest to shame,

                                 It’s the ultimate ‘sport for all’!

                                 No better fun can be had with a bat and ball!

 

Verse 2            Take a good strike, as hard as you like,

                                 Then with some pace, run to first base.

                                 Then to base two, unless there’s a queue,

                                 Then, if it’s free, base number three,

                                 Leaving just one more! Get to number four,

                                 And you’ve done it, you’re home and dry!

                                 Glory is yours, raise a fist and punch the sky!

4. In One Ear - with vocals.mp3

 

Verse 1         Sitting down for morning lessons,

                            Some of us still half asleep,

                            Longing for our comfy pillows,

                            Wishing we were counting sheep!

                            Then we’re hit with facts and figures,

                            So much stuff to memorize!

                            The strain we’re under, it’s no wonder 

                            That occasionally it all goes…..

                           

Chorus        In one ear and out the other,

                     Can’t retain it - can’t explain it!

                            In one ear and out the other,

                            Such a shame it won’t remain.

                            It’s all a mystery. How can it be,

                            Though we’ve really tried,

                            It all goes in one ear and out the other side?

 

Verse 2        A classroom in the afternoon

                            Can be a hot and stuffy place,

                            ’Specially if you’re by the window,

                            Sunlight shining in your face!

                            Trying hard to concentrate,

                            To make the information stick.

                            The pressure’s rising, not surprising

                            That occasionally it all goes…..

                           

Chorus        In one ear and out the other…..

 

Middle         Just a bit of understanding’s all we’re asking for,

                            When, in weekly tests, we’ve maybe got a dismal score!

                            Preposition, article and subordinate clause,

                            Our enemies and nemesies….to use some metaphors!

          (spoken) Aha! Metaphors! Well that’s one thing we’ve remembered!

 

Chorus        In one ear and out the other…..

 

Repeat           And out the other side!

6. Splat The Rat - with vocals.mp3

 

Verse 1            Look at the sky, it’s blue and bright.

                                 We chose today, our choice was right.

                                 Everybody busy as bees,

                                 Organising activities.

                                 Will we be ready on time? It’s gonna be tight!

                                 We’re here as one to have some fun,

                                 An afternoon spent in the sun.

                                 So come on down and don’t be late.

                                 Join us here at our annual summer fête!

 

Chorus          You can splat the rat or hook a duck,

                               On the tombola try your luck,

                               Call in at the coconut shy

                               If you’re passing by.

                               Count the sweeties in a jar,

                               Wang a welly really far,

                               Have a go and then maybe do it all again!

 

Verse 2            Well, if you want a little bite,

                                 The barbeque is now alight,

                                 Over by the beer tent –

                                 I think that’s where my father went,

                                 And if he’s given the chance, he’ll be there all night!

                                 A lively, loud and happy crowd,         

                                 The PTA has done us proud!

                                 So come on down and celebrate,

                                 Welcome all to our annual summer fête!

 

Chorus          You can splat the rat or hook a duck…..

 

Shout out       HEY! HOW ABOUT A BIT OF MORRIS DANCING!

 

Instrumental   The Morris Dancers perform a routine! Of course you can have alternative dancing (maypole or line dancing etc) which can be introduced with a shout out. If you don’t have dancers, simply have some fete-goers mime taking part in some of the activities.

 

Chorus          You can splat the rat or hook a duck…..

 

Repeat              Have a go and then maybe do it all again!

2. Deck The Hall - with vocals.mp3

 

Verse 1         This pile of grubby pictures

                            And some writing which has

                            Got to be made into a display,

                            Is looking tired and jaded,

                            All the colour’s faded

                            And it really should be thrown away!

                            But we are in a spot and this is all we’ve got

                            To fill the spaces on the wall!

                            Though we’re a bit downhearted, come on, let’s get started

                            And together we will deck the hall!

 

Verse 2        Look at these bits of paper,

                            Long ago they gave a

                            Good impression of the work we did.

                            But now they’re all so tatty,

                            So dog-eared and ratty,

                            We should now consider getting rid.

                            It’s looking tired and old, but we have still been told

                            To get it back up on the wall!

                            We have some time to spare, it’s going to earn us merits,

                            So together we will deck the hall!

 

Verse 3        Laurence Llewelyn Bowen,

                            How about you showing up

                            And doing something to impress?

                            ’Cause someone helping us

                            To make this fabulous

                            Would really get us out this sticky mess!

                            But we know pigs don’t fly and so we’ll have to try

                            To work some magic on this wall!

                            No reason we can’t do it if we all jump to it!

                            Yes together we will deck the hall!

 

Repeat            No reason we can’t do it if we all jump to it!

                            Yes together we will deck the hall!

 

Repeat            No reason we can’t do it if we all jump to it!

                            Yes together we will deck the hall!

 

3. Inspectors' Song - with vocals.mp3

 

Verse 1                (Mr Sourbottom solo, or all 3 inspectors together)

                                 Isn’t it a lovely day? We’re happy to be here.

                                 Look, our cheerful, smiling faces

                                 Prove that there is nothing much to fear.

                                 We sense apprehension, there’s no need for tension.

                                 It’s our job to see how you’re getting on this year.

 

Chorus          (Children and teachers)

                       Actually that’s not the case.

                               They wouldn’t tell us to our face,

                               They’re really here to dig the dirt, you see!

                               Any secrets we have tried to cover up and hide

                               They’ll expose them all eventually!

 

Verse 2               (Miss Schneider solo, or all 3 inspectors together)

                                 Carry on, don’t change a thing, act normally, please do.

                                 Though you’ll see us in your classrooms,

                                 On the playground, in the lunch hall too,

                                 Ignore what we’re writing, it’s not that exciting.

                                 Be yourselves – let us get to know the ‘real you’.

 

Chorus        Actually that’s not the case…..

 

Verse 3               (Mr Measley solo, or all 3 inspectors together)

                                 If there’s anything you want to tell us, just drop by.

                                 Are your teachers ever late for class

                                 And do you know the reason why?

                                 Mischief, when reported, is it always sorted?

                                 Talk to us, we’ll be confidential – don’t be shy!

 

Chorus        Actually that’s not the case…..

 

Repeat         Any secrets we have tried

                             To cover up and hide

                             They’’ll expose them all eventually!
