Come to the Beach > I Don't Want To Go To School

Teaching Ideas


  • List really weird and interesting reasons for not going to school, e.g. three metres of snow fell on your suburb
  • Act out some of these as telephone conversations. Try to be really convincing
  • Paint/draw this song in comic book style. Rule up boxes for pictures and have speech bubbles
  • Have children list jobs they think the headmaster or principal does. then invite the headmaster or principal into your room to talk about the jobs he/she actually does
  • You are a Principal. Write your diary for a week
  • Research the history of Education
  • Look at Education in other times e.g. Ancient Greece
