Back to School Poems
The alaram clock rings, I open my eyes
A new day begins, I must rise.
Summer time has come to an end, Back to school I must head
I'm looking forward to seeing my friends, but not getting out of bed!
Brand new uniform to wear, new bag on my back
Off to school I tear, with my lunch I have packed.
An exciting time of year as into sixth class I head
My last year of primary school is here and I'm ready for what's ahead
A new teacher to obey, new subjects to be done
New games to play, this year I think I'll have fun!
By Hannah Borthwick
Back to school dressed like dolls
All the chatter in the halls
I come inside to take my seat
Is there anyone new that I have to meet?
It's my last year I should do my best
I'll study so hard to pass every test
When it was sunny outside we played
But when it's raining inside we stayed
I see my friends and I am so glad
We catch up on trends and memories we've had
When I finish my work I reach for a book
I find it so good in two minutes I'm hooked
All the usual subjects English, Irish and maths
Maybe some new ones they're all coming back
And of course for homework the most tiresome of all
I'd rather be outside playing football
We do some P.E, some art, some laps
When Belvedere comes I'll race around the track!
And all the sport with lunchtime leagues
Regardless of who wins we will cheer for both teams
Rewarding good behaviour means pupil of the week
Sure I'll cheer for my friend but I really hope it's me!
With Slán le Rang a Sé, a play, some goodbyes
I'm pretty sure parents will have tears in their eyes!
So when the year finally comes to a close
It's time to move to secondary school, what it holds, who knows?
