A follower recently asked me for recommendations of songs for a 6th class graduation/leavers assembly so I posted the question on the Irish Primary Teacher Facebook page and lots of people left great suggestions. I’ve decided to put them together in a blogpost so they will be easy to find. I will also include You Tube links with lyrics (where possible) to practise. Hope you find them useful! If you have any more suggestions – send them on!
