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!

BETHAN: Too-da-loo and off we go, off we go, off we go

Too-da-loo and off we go, it’s time to say goodbye

ANYA: If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I'll sail the world to find you
JACK.E: If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see
I'll be the light to guide you

 

Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

 

You can count on me like one two three
I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Hope is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring

Bound by our desire
He fell in to a ring of fire

 

He fell in to a burning ring of fire
He went down, down, down
And the flames went higher

And it burns, burns, burns


The ring of fire
The ring of fire

Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up

Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in

‘til I reach the end and then I’ll start again

No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything

I wanna try even though I could fail.

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in

‘til I reach the end and then I’ll start again

No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything

I wanna try even though I could fail.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes

Hold back the river so I

Stop for a minute and see where you hide

Hold back the river, hold back

Of peace on earth to men goodwill
