New Beginning

Say goodbye to colder days,
The sky begins to clear.
Give a wave to Winter for a year.
Like the clocks we all leap forward, 
Hop, skip, jump and play.
Spring is here, it's time for us to say:

 

Flowers are growing and the birds are singing,
Welcome in this new beginning.
Spring has sprung, and we've begun
To see the gifts that Nature's bringing.

Warm days are coming, all the earth is singing,
Welcome in this new beginning.
Spring is here, so give a cheer
For all the gifts that Nature's bringing.

 

Underneath the frozen ground
Plants were just asleep.
As the sun shines shoots will start to peep.
The world that seemed so dull and cold
Has come alive once more.
Begin again, it's what the Springtime's for.

 

Chorus

Warm days, we say, Spring is here. (x4)

 

(Part 1) Warm days, we say, Spring is here. 
Spring has sprung and we've begun
To see the gifts that Nature's bringing.
Warm days we say, Spring is here.
Spring is here so give a cheer
For all the gifts that Nature's bringing. (x2)

 

(Part 2) Flowers are growing and the birds are singing,
Welcome in this new beginning,
Spring has sprung and we've begun
To see the gifts that Nature's bringing.
Warm days are coming, all the earth is singing,
Welcome in this new beginning.
Spring is here so give a cheer
For all the gifts that Nature's bringing. (x2)

 

(All) Yeah!

Power in me

When the race is nearly done, 
And I feel I can’t go on, 
I know I can do something about it. 
My heart will start to race, 
My body find the motion, 
And I will feel empowered from within.

I’ve got the power in me, 
You’ve got the power in you. 
I’ve got the power, p-p-power, 
Got the power in me.
Nobody’s gonna hold me back, 
Nobody’s gonna silence my words, 
Nobody’s gonna close my mind, 
I’ve got the power in me!

When someone’s needing help, 
And the world just walks on by, 
I know I can do something about it. 
I’ll stand up for their rights, 
My voice will find the words, 
And I will feel empowered from within.

I’ve got the power in me, 
You’ve got the power in you. 
I’ve got the power, p-p-power, 
Got the power in me.
Nobody’s gonna hold me back,
Nobody’s gonna silence my words, 
Nobody’s gonna close my mind, 
I’ve got the power in me!

When my mind is closing down, 
And I’m lacking inspiration, 
I know I can do something about it. 
No-one can stop me learning, 
Create my dreams and future, 
And I will feel empowered from within.

I’ve got the power in me, 
You’ve got the power in you. 
I’ve got the power, p-p-power, 
Got the power in me. 
Nobody’s gonna hold me back, 
Nobody’s gonna silence my words, 
Nobody’s gonna close my mind, 
I’ve got the power in me!

We got the power, 
You got the power, 
I got the power, the power in me! (x2)

We got the power (Got the power!) 
You got the power (Got the power!) 
I got the power, the power in me! (x2)

(Instrumental)

I've got the power in me! 
In me!

I’ve got the power in me, 
You’ve got the power in you. 
I’ve got the power, p-p-power, 
Got the power in me.
Nobody’s gonna hold me back, 
Nobody’s gonna silence my words, 
Nobody’s gonna close my mind, 
I’ve got the power in me!

KS2 Production Songs

 

(At some point during the song Miss Kidd and Mr Cane, or two others, could perform a tango on the main stage! Instead of a rose, the male teacher could have the rolled-up envelope in his teeth!)

They're on their way

 

Chorus        They’re on their way! They’re on their way!

                       ‘But it’s the last week of the term!’ I hear you say.

                       If we’re to see this challenge through

                       We have so much to do,

                       There’s a million jobs to start without delay!

                       They’re on their way!

 

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

                       Put back up displays we just took down.

                       Check the state of all our books,

                       Just in case somebody looks.

                       Make inspectors smile, don’t make them frown!

 

Chorus        They’re on their way…..

 

Rap               Health and Safety, SEN,

                       See they are in order, then.

                       Planning and Assessment folders,

                       Up to date the Head has told us!

                       Documents and policies,

                       Make sure we’ve enough of these!

                       Can’t leave any stone unturned,

                       Get it right, or crash and burn!

 

Chorus        They’re on their way…..

 

Verse 2        Children’s toilets must be cleaned and carpets hoovered!

                       Make school dinners fit for VIPs!

                       And as everybody knows,

                       Smarten up and iron your clothes,

                       Get in bright and early, if you please!

 

Chorus        They’re on their way…..

 

Repeat x2   They’re on their way!

 

 

Deck the Hall

 

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!

 

 

                      

 

The Inspectors Song

(Verses can be spoken or sung)

 

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!


In One Ear and Out The Other 

 

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!

 

 

                      

 

Rounders


 

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!

 

Commentator

So, it’s a tense situation in the final minutes of this year’s staff vs children rounders match. The staff are defending a total of seven rounders and the children are currently on six, with just one batter still left in! Here we go then….

 

Miss Kidd bowls the ball to Samantha Patterson who hits it into the outfield. She gets to first base as Mr Cane runs to retrieve the ball. But what’s this? He’s tripped over and is lying flat on his face on the grass, while Samantha has made it to second base!

 

Mr Cane finally picks up the ball, as Mrs Barker, fielding on fourth base, shouts desperately for him to throw it to her. Mr Cane launches a wild throw which sails over Mrs Barker’s head and into the bushes! Samantha makes it easily to fourth base, levelling the score! It’s seven rounders each! 

 

Samantha steps up again. Can she score that all-important eighth rounder to secure victory for the children? Miss Kidd bowls and Samantha hits it high in the air to Mr Cane. Surely he’s going to catch it. It’s still in the air as Samantha reaches first base.

Mr Cane is under the ball….he’s poised….he….DROPS IT!

 

Samantha’s now on second base, as Mr Cane picks up the ball and throws it to Mrs Barker on fourth base. But….oh no….he’s thrown it too hard again and once more it sails over her head and into the bushes!

 

Samantha’s on third base as Mrs Barker, to the frantic yells of her team mates, dives into the prickly hawthorn! She emerges with the ball, but it’s too late! Samantha has got to fourth base, earning her team their eighth rounder and, with it, victory for the children!

(The music finishes)

                                   

As Samantha is held aloft on her teammates’ shoulders, the teachers are surrounding Mr Cane, furious at him for costing them the match! What a thrilling finale, and as the players leave the pitch, Mr Cane is left alone to contemplate the series of mistakes that led to his team’s defeat!

 

Splat the Rat

 

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!

 

This Special Place

  

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…..

                          So come on, let your hair down

                          And throw your hands up in the air!

 

Chorus            Celebrate this special year together!

Verse 2            Shout about it, how could we ever doubt it?

                          Everybody’s a winner through and through!

                          We’re all achievers, yes you better believe us,

                          We got the job done but there’s one thing left to do.

                          So come on, let your hair down

                          And throw your hands up in the air!

 

Chorus            Celebrate this special year together.....

 

Instrumental Everyone takes a turn to dance, including the inspectors who cut loose for a few bars as everyone stands round them clapping!

                             Mr Measley’s dance includes some bottle-flipping!
