Leavers’ Assembly Ode. Sample Text:

Speaker 1:       So here we are

At the end of Year Six

We’ve reached the end

No time to fix ….

Speaker 2:       How many wives was it Henry VIII had?

Was it poor judgement or was he just bad?

Speaker 3:       When was it those Vikings attacked our shores

Leaving all that mess on monastery floors?

Speaker 4:       Was Boudicca really as brave as they say?

Or were the Romans just cowards to run away?

Speaker  5:      Why did the Romans come and then go?

Was it the weather that made them feel low?

Speaker 6:       Why bother, then, with all those straight roads?

Was it to impress?  Or ease their car loads?

Oops! Now wait a minute … didn’t they come later?

Dates and chronology – I’m not so hot on that data!

Speaker 7:       Yeah, hold on a minute,

You’re going too fast!

What about those Ancient Civilisations

From way back in the past?

Speaker 8:       Huh, you trying to tell me

I need to know about mummies?

About pharaohs and weird rituals

That will upset our tummies?

Speaker 9:       Oh, you mean rituals like

Taking the brains out through the nose?

But didn’t they teach you

That in Ancient Egypt .. anything goes?

Speaker 10:     And what of the Greeks?

And their worship of ‘what’s his name’?

Speaker 11:     That Big Daddy of the gods?

Speaker 12:     Of Olympic Games fame?

 

Got something to discuss?
