I am looking for an Activity plan for a session on school days, can anyone help with any songs that were sung in Assembley in the 1950's? or any fun activities that all the group at various stages could enjoy . would reciting poems or the Times table be too infantile? I have seen the Schooldays questions on the Activities site and will try this but need some more ideas!

Hi Clare, many schools sang hymns like 'Amazing Grace', 'Kumbaya My Lord', and 'How Great Thou Art'. Also popular were 'Oh Susanna', Skip to My Lou' 'Run Rabbit Run', and 'Camptown Races'.

Thankyou for your suggestions! I've also got some playground songs, Oranges and Lemons, London Bridge is falling down, In and out the dusty Bluebells,123 Mother caught a flea, Row row row your boat, and some poems that were learned by heart, Tyger tyger burning bright by william Blake and If By Rudyard Kipling! Hopefully we should have some fun with these.
