Book Descriptions

Citizenship Songsheets: Moving On

Photocopiable music, lyrics, teaching ideas and CD for learning, practising and performing a song worth discussing: that's the idea of Suzy Davies' cross curricular song project.  "Moving On" is an encouraging song, and it's a farewell song, too, ideal for a touching and unforgettable performance at any kind of school-leaving ceremony. Try it out!


"(...)

We've grown up, settled down, fitted in, fallen out,

leraned some lessons, too.

And no matter where life takes us, we're sure to make mistakes,

But there'll always be a way of getting through.

And we shouldn't be afraid of change, cause nothing ever stays the same for long.

(...)

I wish you clear roads, bold adventures, lasting friendships, close and true,

As we leave the past behind us, let's hope tomorrow finds us right where we belong.

And if this should be our farewell song: goodbye, good luck, so long!

Hold your head up high, stay strong, 'cause now it's time for moving on, we're moving on."

Text Level Year 7

Cool reading and writing activities for literacy lessons, perfect as starters. Developed for teaching English in Britain in years 7,8, and 9 and also well worth a good look at them for teachers of grades 11-13 in Germany or advanced/ conversation classes for adult learners. Best thing about it: Every page is easily (and legally) photocopiable. 


Another great title from a series that provides a wealth of resources for classes, focused tasks for the main part of the lesson, extension activities, support for interactive teaching and flexible activities that can be adapted to different purposes and pupils.
