Miss Williams, Miss Williams, what time is break?
By Year 6, you’d think we’d know, for goodness sake!
Question after question – it’s how we get our kicks
However, there have been some other trends throughout year 6
First, here is a sneaky clue: it should be on our table
We should be able to keep it still, however, we’re just not able
You’d be surprised to know, that its primary use is sipping
You’ve guessed it: it’s the tedious, incessant bottle flipping!
What stationery do we need? Just a pencil you would think.
However our smiggles are big enough, to carry the kitchen sink!
Don’t bring this stuff in to school, we were told time after time,
Yes that’s right…you’ve guessed it! The homemade gooey slime!
At Christmas we busted some moves, along to our favourite music
It ended with an almighty dance off, won by super-smooth Isaac
The Whip nae nae was one of, our favourite moves to make
But we must not forget, the awesome Harlem shake!
We used to do this next thing all the time till it was banned
It’s a silly dance move where we have to raise one hand
The teachers didn’t like it – but we thought it was fab
Not the moonwalk or the running man, no – the year 6 dab!
Our teachers said that, years ago, this used to be quite cool
Back when cards were trendy and you had to ‘catch ‘em all!’
But now….”there is an app for that”, and everyone’s a pro
Remember when we were obsessed with Pokemon Go?
There was a phase when everyone, would say “Jeff – that’s my name!”
That 9+10 was 21 (Poor maths – that’s such a shame)
Our teachers didn’t mind this one (at least it hushed our din)
We’d suddenly stop in our tracks for challenge mannequin!
Then, in a flash, SATs came and went: “It’s over!” we all sighed
Once Summer term was underway, these fads seem to subside
The teachers thought these trends had gone (“Aren’t we onto a winner?!)
But shops just sat and laughed at that, as they sold the Fidget Spinner
On our residential to the Isle of Wight, the boys made up a new game
Whilst we all had a wonderful time, it really was a pain!
“But did I?” “But are you?” we’d hear all day long
Irritating questions that gave a headache to poor Ms Armstrong!
As expected, loads of fun, was created with technology
Gaining fame and making fans lipsyncing with musical.ly
Taking selfies and having fun using the latest apps
Swapping faces, adding filters using ‘face swap’ and snapchat!
‘Harambay’ and ‘fresh trim’ were some sayings of year 6
With silly noises, crazy moose and cool dude finger clicks
Some have been giving out free hugs, trying to spread some joy
Others caught the ‘chin chin chant’ started by a certain boy.
‘I’m in me mum’s car’ and ‘need some milk’ were some popular vines
The teachers though had no idea, obviously a sign of the times.
Supervising Year 6 on indoor break became a bit of a palava
As we developed a brand new game called ‘ The Floor is lava’!
These crazes may have been and gone but there’s so much more to learn
The teachers will await the fads of their days to return
Toys or fashion, turns of phrase, we’ll have to wait and see
And, as we move up to year 7, what will the next one be?
Andy’s coming!… (Toy story pic on screen)
