You come to school on your first day making friends and having fun.
You are in p2 you have a new teacher and more work to do.
In p3 you have lots of fun and play outside with your friends.
Now you are in p4and you have made some new friends.
In p5 you have more work to do and lots of homework.
You are in p6 and you learn something new every day.
You are in p7 and you are leaving school soon
I am in p1 life is hard for me
I can’t get used to saying goodbye to my mum.
I’m in p2 I’ve got used to saying goodbye to my mum but there’s only one thing
It’s not good but from to time I still hate school.
I’m in p3 the work has started but it’s not hard.
P4 is when the work gets harder but now I get used to being away from my mum.
P5, 6 and 7 are all fun but the work gets harder still.
The years have flown
So quickly by.
It's time for me to say "Goodbye"
To Elmgrove my favourite school
I'll not be leaving as a fool.
They taught me well everyday
From Mrs Holmes to Mr Gray.
To set and guide me on my way
End of nursery no more playing and crying for my mum
Laugh you may it wasn't very funny back then
Monday the start of school I was very scared
Going home such a relief
Rolling with fun in P1
Out of P1 it wasn't the end
Viewing P2 and it was starting all over again
Ending now and when I look back such fun I had on my journey at Elmgrove.
A Poem about School
Early in the morning having to get up for school,
Late sometimes when the teachers marking the roll,
Must do this, must do that, must do everything,
Get packed and now I'm off to school oh how boring,
R.E. with the teacher, Maths and P.E. too,
On and off we change and do a different subject,
Vice Principal Miss Brown telling us to be quiet,
Every day we have to go to school to learn to read and write.
Pupils in P7 are leaving ‘ oh how sad'
Raining all day no option you still have to come,
I don't want to leave because I am so used to it,
Mr Gray our teacher is one of the best teachers,
As soon as I leave I know I will want to come back,
Resting and relaxing I do that when I go home,
Young children will be starting Elmgrove in September, travelling the same road we did.
Elmgrove is my primary school which I will always remember.
Lots of good memories at Elmgrove which I will never forget.
Mr Gray is my p7 teacher who I've liked a lot.
Good teachers who help us do our work
Raging teachers who shout at bad boys and girls.
Our work has improved through the years.
‘Very good' our teachers write on our books
Everybody from p7 is leaving Elmgrove and I'm gonna miss it and all my schoolmates.
P6 started off like all the rest and from Easter we got ready for our Transfer Test
Even when school stopped at the end of year, we had work to do it and I couldn't cheer
Working instead of going out with all our friends I think we will be glad when the test ends!
Every child out of P7 is
Leaving Elmgrove Primary School
My mates think Elmgrove was really cool
Good little children is teachers want but when they're
Really grumpy they huff and pant
Our teacher is really good
Very cross he is when he's in a bad mood
Elmgrove will always have special memories for me.
Elmgrove is the best school around
Laughter and happiness can always be found
Musical talents from the orchestra and choir
Generations of children made to inspire
Remembering our teachers who have shown us the way
Opportunities new will be coming each day
Visions of the future and also the past
Eternal in my mind and they will always last
In P1 I sat and cried
In P2 I lost my shoe
In P3 I giggled with glee
In P4 I came in the door
In P5 I could almost jive
In P6 I learnt to spell fix
In P7 it's time to go....
....and we sadly leave, having to say a final goodbye.
Every year I've had a ball,
Lead the way so we can play.
More space to play with not so much people,
Get your trainers, lets go and play.
Remove the bad boys so we can have fun,
Overall it's great teachers and all.
Very hard work it's worth in the end.
Every year I've been happy
So I'd like to thank everybody.
P1 was a year when I still sucked my thumb
P2 was for dressing up in the playroom
P3 I thought I was moving up life
P4 meant no more playtime, just trying to count, read and write
P5 big hard maths sheets and lots of tests
P6 all hard work, it's will it ever end
P7 it was all worthwhile ELMGROVE,
Elmgrove Primary School was the best days of my life
Little children running everywhere
Maths was fun and so was English
Geography and History are too
R is for running the races for sport
Our teachers are kind our teachers are helpful
Various teachers can be cross
Elmgrove I'll miss it all!.
Everybody's leaving for the school summer holidays.
Leaving P7's say their goodbyes to their teachers.
Mr Gray watches us walk out the school gates.
Goodbye Elmgrove, see you when we visit.
Remember all the good times I have had.
Our uniform we don't need anymore.
Very long times we have spent in this school.
Everyone's waving goodbye as they leaving for secondary school.
Seven years ago I started primary 1
Children playing games, learning and having lots of fun
How long will it be until I am P2
Oh goodness me I am in P3
Over the years we have had to learn hard work
Leaving Elmgrove now it will really hurt
Soon I will be changing school
Coming each day to Ashfield Girls
Holidays are between now and then
Our school uniform is not green anymore
Oh I wish I could stay because the work will get harder
Leaving school should be scary
Elmgrove School is really good.
Leaving I do agree much.
Might take the bus to school today.
Good morning I will say to the bus driver.
Reading, Spelling, Maths and English that's what we do mostly.
Other times its Science, RE, History and Geography,
Very easy subjects but can be hard.
Every day we will do something cool.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
