If What I Am - Song Lyrics

Next week, the Rimu class are in charge of hosting assembly. We were so impressed with their performance last term, that we have decided to continue the tradition of singing a group song.

You can find the lyrics and a link to the YouTube video below.

Will.i.am - If What I am

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyVzjoj96vs



'If what I am is what's in me
then I'll stay strong - that's who I'll be
and I will always be the best
"me" that I can be
There's only one me, I am it
have a dream I'll follow it
It's up to me to try

Oh! I'mma keep my head up high (high)
Keep on reaching high (high)
Never gonna quit
I'll keep getting stronger
And nothing's gonna bring me down (no!)
Never gonna stop, gotta go
because I know
I'll keep getting stronger


And what I am is (thoughtful)
and what I am is (musical)
and what I am is (smart)
and what I am is (brave)
and what I am is (helpful)
and what I am is (special)
and what i am is (happy)
There's nothing I can't achieve
because in myself I believe and...
Chorus 2
Oh! Gonna keep our heads up high (high)
Keep on reaching high
Never gonna quit
just keep getting stronger
And nothing's gonna bring us down (no!)
Never giving up, gotta go
Because I know
I'll keep getting stronger


What I am is (super)
What I am is (proud)
What I am is (friendly)
What I am is (grouchy)
What you are is (magical)
and what you are is (special)
There's nothing I can't achieve
because in myself I believe and...
Chorus 3
Oh! Gonna hold my head up high (high)
Keep on reaching high (high)
I'm never gonna stop
I'll keep getting stronger
Nothing's gonna bring me down
Never give it up gotta go, oh... yeah...
I'll keep getting strong-er

Goldilocks Visits Rimu

Last week, the Rimu students got a surprise visit from Goldilocks! The student's asked very inquisitive questions and Goldilocks did her best to answer them all! Some of the children were very disappointed that Goldilocks broke into the three bears house, and some even called her a criminal!

The student's then wrote a descriptive piece of writing, describing what Goldilocks looked like and why she broke into the three bears house. They produced excellent work and drew beautiful illustrations to go along with their writing.

Hopefully Goldilocks will think twice before she breaks into someone's house again!
