Our teeth are scrubbed, our hair is brushed
We’re almost ready but mum feels rushed
We’ve washed our faces, bags are ready
Eaten breakfast, slow and steady
On with our uniforms, we look so smart
Cleaning our shoes is a work of art
Straighten our collars, we all look quite neat
From freshly brushed hair to the socks on our feet.
With bags on our shoulders, coats on our backs
Our lunches are ready, which Mum always packs
Mum locks the door and we’re all on our way
We wonder aloud what we will learn today
Will it be Numeracy, Literacy or games?
Or will we be learning to write our own names?
We already know how to do many of those things
Mum taught us at home, to help spread our wings
Each step brings us nearer to where we are head
We all love our schooldays, want nothing instead
As we round the corner, our friends we all meet
We love to be here, this school is real neat!
