A transition triumph took place at The John Roan Secondary School this Tuesday.

Over 60 Year 6 pupils from 8 primary schools based in the Olympic Borough of Greenwich came together to  meeting and greeting the people that will be moving into, and through, secondary school with. 

Working with a drama practitioner, film maker, poet and flashmob director, the pupils produced their ideas and inspirations in answer to this question:

IF THE OLYMPICS  ARE COMING AND THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE ON LONDON THEN WHAT DO WE WANT TO SAY?

We created our messages to the world.  First up, lines of lyrical loveliness from Paul Lyalls and his poetic companions:

 

The Real Monopoly

 

Walking through Monopoly Town

A parade of umbrellas going round

The smell of fuel engulfs us

Shops full of fashion making people feel dizzy

Weather changing all the time

It’s so, so busy.

 

Cars buses and trains rushing

White vans on a mission

Faster trains on the underground, people pushing

London Bridge is falling Down

Huge landmarks scatter

Time always matters.

 

Immense skyscrapers tall as they can be

Dancers with ebony eyes

Sometimes the bright golden sun comes to visit

The smell of vinegar on chips

Buses full of perfume

Hello on everyone lips.

 

Ice cream vans roaming down the street

Alarms running through ears

The night filled with yellow light

Red signs catch your eye

Advertisements go by.

 

Neon colours everywhere

Big red balloons in the air

Slowly spinning Big Ben

The time is near

The time is clear

As we count down to our Olympic year

People walking talking about it all the time

This is our chance to shine.
