    www.classdisplays.co.uk
     
  2. There's a place for us - West Side Story. Always makse the parents cry.

    There's a place for us,
    Somewhere a place for us.
    Peace and quiet and open air
    Wait for us
    Somewhere.
    There's a time for us,
    Some day a time for us,
    Time together with time to spare,
    Time to look, time to care,
    Someday!
    Somewhere.
    We'll find a new way of living,
    We'll find a way of forgiving
    Somewhere.

    There's a place for us,
    A time and place for us.
    Hold my hand and we're half way there.
    Hold my hand and I'll take you there
    Somehow,
    Someday,
    Somewhere!
     
  3. Good idea but any suggestions a bit more bouncy?

    S CLUB 7 LYRICS

    "Reach"

    When the world, leaves you feeling blue
    You can count on me, I will be there for you
    When it seems, all your hopes and dreams
    Are a million miles away, I will re-assure you

    We've got to all stick together
    Good friends, there for each other
    Never ever forget that
    I've got you and you've got me, so

    Reach for the stars
    Climb every mountain higher
    Reach for the stars
    Follow your hearts desire
    Reach for the stars
    And when that rainbow's shining over you
    That's when your dreams will all come true

    There's a place waiting just for you
    Is a special place where your dreams all come true
    Fly away, swim the ocean blue
    Drive that open road, leave the past behind you
    Don't stop gotta keep moving
    Your hopes have gotta keep building
    Never ever forget that
    I've got you and you've got me, so

    Reach for the stars
    Climb every mountain higher
    Reach for the stars
    Follow your hearts desire
    Reach for the stars
    And when that rainbow's shining over you
    That's when your dreams will all come true

    Don't believe in all that you've been told
    The sky's the limit you can reach your goal
    No-one knows just what the future holds
    There ain't nothing you can't be
    There's a whole world at your feet
    I said reach

    Climb every mountain (reach)
    Reach for the moon (reach)
    Follow that rainbow
    And your dreams will all come true

    Reach for the stars
    Climb every mountain higher
    Reach for the stars
    Follow your hearts desire
    Reach for the stars
    And when that rainbow's shining over you
    That's when your dreams will all come true
    Reach for the stars
    Climb every mountain higher
    Reach for the stars
    Follow your hearts desire
    Reach for the stars
    And when that rainbow's shining over you
    That's when your dreams will all come true
    Reach for the stars
    Climb every mountain higher [fade to finish]

     
  6. There's a place for us - I bet that really would get the parents going. What a good song choice!

    When I worked in a school about 5 years ago they did an R Kelly song - 'World's Greatest' or something. It sounded really nice - uplifting!!!

    Did a lyric search for you...

    Yeah,Uhh...
    Uhh...
    Yeah..
    It's the worlds greatest, Yo,
    It's the worlds greatest, Come on,
    Worlds Greatest, Ever

    I am a mountain
    I am a tall tree
    Ohhh, I am a swift wind
    Sweepin' the country
    I am a river
    Down in the valley
    Ohhh, I am a vision
    And I can see clearly
    If anybody asks u who I am
    Just stand up tall look 'em in the Face and say

    [Chorus]
    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey, I made it
    I'm the worlds greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my backs against the ropes
    I can feel it mmm
    I'm the worlds greatest

    I am a giant
    I am an eagle
    I am a lion
    Down in the jungle
    I am a marchin' band
    I am the people
    I am a helpin' hand
    And I am a hero
    If anybody asks u who I am
    Just stand up tall look 'em in the Face and say

    [Chorus]
    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    I made it
    I'm the worlds greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my backs against the ropes
    I can feel it
    I'm the worlds greatest

    In the ring of life I'll reign love
    And the world will notice a king
    When all is darkest, I'll shine a light
    And use a success you'll find in me

    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey, I made it
    I'm the world's greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my back's against the ropes
    I can feel it
    I'm the world's greatest

    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey, I made it
    I'm the world's greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my back's against the ropes
    I can feel it
    I'm the world's greatest

    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey, I made it
    I'm the world's greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my back's against the ropes
    I can feel it
    I'm the world's greatest

    [*]
    It's the greatest
    Can you feel it
    It's the greatest
    Can you feel it

    [Repeat * while:]
    I saw the light
    At the end of a tunnel
    Believe in the pot of gold
    At the end of the rainbow
    And faith was right there
    To pull me through, yeah
    Used to be locked doors
    Now I can just walk on through
    Hey, uh, hey, hey, hey
    It's the greatest
    I'm that star up in the sky

    I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey, I made it
    I'm the world's greatest
    And I'm that little bit of hope
    When my back's against the ropes
    I can feel it
    I'm the world's greatest
     
  8. That's one of my favourite songs ever - really good feeling song.

    True Colors - Cyndi Lauper

    I like the bit where it says 'just call me up, because you know I'll be there'. Let's the children know they're still part of your community, etc.
     
  13. This song is from the 'Sing UP' website; www.singup.org. There's a backing track that you can download, too. You'll have to register, but you don't get 'hassle' from them. They'll send you a song book every term, too, with new songs to siong. Have had great fun with some old and new songs!

    Hope this makes sense. Frantically typing before laptop battery dies!!

    When I look up to the stars,
    there?s a burning deep inside me
    and I feel a power growing in my soul.
    There is something I can sense,
    deep within a dream to guide me,
    and I know that I am reaching for my goal.

    I can do anything at all,
    I can climb the highest mountain,
    I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
    I can be anything I want,
    with this hope to drive me onward,
    if I can just believe in me.

    When the skies are dark and grey,
    we still know the sun is shining:
    though it?s out of sight, its light is glowing still.
    And as long as I believe,
    there is nothing I can?t wish for;
    not a dream that I?m unable to fulfill.

    (Oo oo oo oo)

    I can do anything at all,
    I can climb the highest mountain,
    I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
    I can be anything I want,
    with this hope to drive me onward,
    if I can just believe in me.

    (Ah ah ah
    if I can just believe in me.)

    And whatever it takes I?ll find it somehow;
    whatever it needs I?ll show I?m strong.
    Whatever it takes I?ll make it happen:
    finding out where I belong.

    (I?ll find it somehow.
    I?ll show I?m strong, I?ll show I?m strong.
    I?ll make it happen:
    finding out where I belong.)

    While the world is spinning round,
    I can sometimes lose direction
    and I know how hard it is to find my way.
    But with friends around to care,
    there is nothing I can?t handle,
    and I?ll face the future treasuring each day.

    (Oo oo oo oo)

    I can do anything at all,
    I can climb the highest mountain,
    I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
    I can be anything I want,
    with this hope to drive me onward,
    if I can just believe in me.
    (Ah ah ah
    if I can just believe in me.)

  14. We're doing the Mika song Relax ... Take it Eeeeeeasy

    Relax, take it easy
    For there is nothing that we can do
    Relax, take it easy
    Blame it on me or blame it on you

    It's as if I'm scared
    It's as if I'm terrified
    It's as if I scared
    It's as if I'm playing with fire
    Scared
    It's as if I'm terrified
    Are you scared?
    Are we playing with fire?
    Relax


    and the Parable of the Talents - we've also been messing around with www.magmypic.com - and children have been putting their photos on fake magazines of what they are going to achieve in the future - dead funny - we're thinking about the future this time instead of the thinking of the past and memories which we normally do - oh and doing the footsteps in the sand poem -

    Good luck all with your leavers assmeblies not long now ey !

  18. We did lean on me...kids loved it. We did the big sing version.
     
  19. I had a mixed Year 5/6 class last so beacuse there were only a few children we had a fair few songs! We had pictures on a powerpoint slide show of them all with their best friends whilst we sang 'your my best friend'by Queen. The children were quite challenging and street wise so I'm amazed they did this so well. Then we sang a song about our school that my sister wrote to a pop song (living in electric dreams)!

    We've been at Upton quite a while,
    We cannot count the smiles,
    That we have all had,
    We were hardly ever sad.

    Its not too hard to recognise,
    It isnt a suprise,
    that we are all friends,
    no matter where or when,

    We will always remember,
    good old Upton St. James
    We will always remember,
    Our memories will not fade.

    Through all the years we got work done,
    Whilst having loads of fun,
    We've got through thick and thin,
    we just cant lose, we always win.

    Through the years of memories,
    The friendships and the tests,
    Upton St. James,
    This school is just the best.

    We will always remember,
    good old Upton St. James
    We will always remember,
    Our memories will not fade.



    And finally at the end we sand the theme tune from friends.

    We had smiles and tears.

    P.S I love Reach for the stars - sad but true.
