Grade 5/6 hip-hop raps

In Term 2, Grade 5/6 students studied the history of Hip-Hop music and its cultural significance. They learnt various rap skills and techniques and also had first-hand tips from local MCs Mantra, Grey Ghost and Class A during the hip-hop incursion. They combined all this knowledge and composed their own raps. With a focus on technology, students created their own backing tracks using the GarageBand software and rehearsed and recorded their raps on iPads. Check out some of these skillzz yo!

This term Grade 3 and 4 students have been working in small groups to write and perform their own raps. They used a template to structure their composition and had to rehearse and perform their rap to a backing track. Grade 3 students focused on performance and Grade 4 students focused on recording using the GarageBand software and created their own backing tracks.

Grade 1 & 2 Animal Raps

Grade 1 and 2 students worked very hard on their Animal Raps this term. Each group chose a different animal and brainstormed some words and ideas for their rap. They then had to think of rhymes that would suit their animal and write their rap using a composition template. As a class, the students chose some drum and bass loops using the GarageBand software to create a backing track for their class rap. They then had to practise along to the backing track and finally record their raps using an iPad. We even had to wear headphones like in a real recording studio!! Yo, yo…check below to hear our class animal raps and see what we got up to…
