Songs about reaching goals

Discussion in 'Primary' started by yoitsjo, Dec 27, 2010.

  1. Hi everyone!
    Here I am writing my class assembly once again...
    We are talking about what we are good at, telling the story of Ambrose goes for gold (thank you to the tesser that suggested that), singing a song about what we are good at, talking about what we want to get better at and how we will get better and then I would like a song.
    I did a very similar assembly last year with a different story and different songs. I used 'reach for the stars' which was a hit with the parents as the children all sang and danced to the song. I am trying to find a song that will match that! I was thinking about 'Don't stop never give up' by S Club 7 but am not sure that it is as good...does anybody have any other bright ideas?!
    Thanks in advance!

    Starship - Nothing's gonna stop us now. Lyrics can be interpreted to be about friendship as well as love.....
     
  3. Eye of the tiger? Sorry can't think of any more! Trying to help as you took the time to help me earlier! When you believe - Mariah Carey? Sorry x
     
  4. Good ideas! Thank you both for your replies!
    Lardylegs...that is the problem that I am finding that so many lyrics could be deemed inappropriate for Year 1 children to be singing!!
