WE ALL NEED TO WORK ON OUR TIMES TABLES 

 

Please practise your times tables as the better you get the easier maths will become. We have added some fun websites to help you achieve this goal. Please use them. I like the slingshot game personally! (Multiplication.com)

Don’t Stop Believing

Just a Roath Park girl
living in her happy world
She’s getting ready to go to her brand new school.
Just a year six boy, growing to be six feet tall,
He’s getting ready to go, to his brand new school.

Teachers sat in their staff room
The smell of coffee and perfume
With a smile they share memories
That go on and on and on and on

Pupils, walking,
Up and down the corridors
Their old friends, saying goodbye
Roath Park, pupils
Leaving for a big adventure
Standing, waving their goodbyes

We’ve worked hard for seven years

Facing our biggest fears

Now we stand here altogether
For one last time

Some will stay, some will go,
But there’s one thing that we know,
Our friendships will never end,
They go on and on and on and on

Pupils, walking,
Up and down the corridors
Their old friends, saying  goodbye

 

Roath Park pupils
Leaving for a big adventure
Standing, waving their goodbyes

Don't stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Roath Park Leavers, ohhh!
