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?
