I have been asked by my headteacher to find some "tear-jerking" pieces for children (aged 7 to 11) to perform at the end of year Speech Day. She apparently wants all the mums and dads to have their handkerchieves out - and I have been left with very little time to arrange this !

I have already lined up an extract from Laurie Lee, "Cider With Rosie" (his first day at school), a couple of poems about different stages in learning to read, and Allan Ahlberg's "Goodbye Old School", I have thought of maybe using the Irish blessing "May be road rise to meet you", although it is not specifically about leaving school.

I think someone once posted an atmospheric poem(or song)on here about an empty classroom - I've searched all possible options here and it hasn't come to light.

I'd be very grateful for your suggestions.
Thanking you all in advance,
- jeanie

Some of the children will be moving on, so the round
'make new friends, but keep the old- one is silver and the other gold' might be suitable

At PS 152, Manhattan, they made us sing,

If I had the wings of a turtle dove,
Back to one fifty-two I would fly,
And there I would play with those stoo-oo-dents.
I would play til the day that I die.

Hi,
   Don't know if this is too late but last year at the end of our school mass I had sixth class children mime out a poem. Unfortunately I'm not at school now and don't know it all but it goes like this

Remember when we came to school
and sat upon a tiny stool
and all the other kids were tall
and we were very very small
Remember.

While its being read I had ajunior child act out with a senior child. I can get the rest of it tomorrow in school if you're interested. this year I need new material and am completely stuck.
Good luck with it all. Enjoy the break.
