Sats song (to the tune of "Row, row, row the boat")

16th May 2003 at 01:00
Sats, Sats, hope I'll pass, every single test,

Pencil, paper, ruler, pen, we will do our best!

Work, work, work all day, we are getting mad,

All we want to do is play, on the yard instead.

Slave. slave, slave away, we want to be free,

When we have the sats all done, we will shout YIPPEE!

By Kate Atkinson, Year 6 pupil at Dove primary school, Sheffield
