Year 6 Leavers’ Song (Wellerman)
There once was a school called _______ school,
The staff were great and the pupils cool.
For eight long years we grew and grew
Preparing for this day - HEY!
This is our leavers’ song,
The summer’s here and we’re moving on.
Just time for a singalong,
We’ll take our leave and go!
In early years we played in sand,
And if we cried you held our hand.
Splashing water always banned
We twinkled like the stars – AHH!
In Key Stage One we learnt to write,
Sound out words and spell them right.
You really set our minds alight
And sent us on our way.
In Key Stage Two our brains aglow,
So many facts for us to know.
Creative juices start to flow
Let’s take this knowledge and go – WHOAH!
Then Covid came and spoilt our fun,
No mixed bubbles for anyone.
We did our work with PJs on:
Lockdown rules for all - BOO!
We’ve learnt what makes a school feel nice,
If we mucked about, we paid the price.
We’ve listened to your sound advice
We think we know it all - YEAH!
Final Chorus x2
Our school has been a blast,
The times gone by so very fast.
Memories will last and last
We’ll take our leave and go! (repeat)
Good luck on your next step, Year 6 – keep the beat!
