Friday Five: Songs that should be on every primary teacher's playlist
Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
"I work much too late. Got nothing in my brain. That’s what people say, mm-mmm. That’s what people say, mm-mmm. So let them take my class. And I’ll be laughing off my a***. Cos I’m off to Dubai. See me wave good-bye."
Lose Yourself – Eminem
"He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop stats, but he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down. The Ofsted inspector raises his brow. He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out…You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to show, your Raise online moves come once in a lifetime, yo."
Tonight – from West Side Story
"Tonight, tonight. I’ll be marking tonight. Tonight there will be no morning star."
Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars
"Stop. Wait a minute. Punctuate, put some commas in it. Take a tip, always check. Julio, c’mon stretch. Use your passive, adjectives, fronted adverbials. If you show them, your metaphors, smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy."
The Time Warp – from The Rocky Horror Show
"It’s just a jump to the left. And then a step to the right. You bring your knees in tight. But it’s the GRAMMAR thrust, which really drives you insane. Let’s do the Time Warp again."
