…We’re the best rapping class the world’s ever seen…

Post number three…again, stuck in cyber-space…

We’re tip-top, slip-slap, rap-rap queeeeeens (and kings)! As you may well have heard from the rap-happy children, we started our next English unit on rap this week. We’ve visited an old favourite (Tony Mitton’s Write-A-Rap Rap) and learnt Jack Ousbey’s Gran Can You Rap which culminated in a group performance of it this morning. We filmed it, the children identified the positives and the things they could work on and then we rerecorded it focussing on their suggested improvements. They did really well and we’re looking forward to writing our own raps next week. It also ties in nicely with their current work in Music which is a bonus!

The Year 5s have also started practising their performance for the pyramid Advent Service at St Benedict’s in two weeks time. They should all have the sheet with the lyrics on… if you would like to practise at home, the karaoke version we’re using is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AooBUpwkCJM. We’ll also start looking at O Little Town of Bethlehem, The Little Drummer Boy and Hark the Herald Angels sing.

We cannot believe that it’s already Advent next week; have a joyful feast of Christ the King on Sunday and let the count-down to Christmas begin…


Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
