Pencils sharpened, shiny shoes bought
New uniform ready, will look so smart.
PE kit labelled, new bag for your books
Fancy lunch box too, how grand you will look!

All ready to go and meet your new teacher,
Be excited to learn the new things they will teach you.
Looking forward to being with your friends to play
And tell each other about your six weeks holiday.

So early to bed and make sure the alarm is set
This could be the best school year yet!
At 8:45 we will open the gate -
Until 8:55 so don’t be late.

We look forward to seeing you all in the morning
All bright and smiling, no moaning or yawning.
Welcome back to Duke Street, pupils and staff too,
Happy new school year to all of you.
