This week’s theme from the weekly Life’s A Journey Nostalgia link up is school songs.
Although I can’t remember having a particular school anthem/song, which we all patriotically sang with gusto, I do remember lots of singing in assembly.
We’d all file into the hall in a morning, and sit in cross legged rows, while the teacher stood at the front and addressed the masses.
There were lots of songs.
One of my favourite primary school songs was:
“Autumn days when the grass is jewelled
and the silk inside a chestnut shell………
So I mustn’t forget to say a great big thank you,
No I mustn’t forget.
Or there was this one, in which I can actually remember all the words to!
“At half past three
We go home for tea,
Or maybe at quarter to four
and ten pairs of feet go running up the street
and in at their own front door.
And it’s rough and tumble,
rattle and noise,
Mother and baby, girls and boys
Baby in the carry cot,
Cat by the stove
A little bit of quarrelling,
A lot of love!
Do you remember these? Or did you have some other favourites?
Let us know!
