Rehearsal of Pirate , Inquiry and Student Agency Songs for video shooting in Term 4

Here is how we rehearsed how to make our Song SING!
 First we sang the Buccaneer Pirate Song as rowdy pirates accompanied with  musical instruments which we made at home from recycled material like boxes and bottles.

 Then we created our Inquiry Rap lyrics from our research inquiries terms 1, 2, and 3 and added all of them to out term 4 's inquiry which is 'Sing Out for Change!'
 We worked in teams to made up an interesting and melodious  beat or tune for our Inquiry Rap to capture our audience 

 Then we added some gestures and actions like body percussion - clap and stamp- to add some excitement and fun.

We took on different roles to produce our "Sing out for  Change Rap !" 
Some of us were performers such as Captain Stickler, who is a real stickler when it comes to rules and tidiness on deck the Red Thorn pirate ship. As for her jolly pirate crew, Scallywag, One eyed Jack and Pegleg to name a few -live to  have fun in the sun while sailing on the high seas.
 Other students in class took on a variety of  roles such as background singers, drama script writers, costume designers, music instrument makers, time keepers and video shooters to  bring it all together. Yes! they worked together like A-Team.
We need to get our performance all- done and dusted - by Thursday 1 December 2016, and  have all the videos sent away to Hoyt's Cinema for practice trials. 
But guess what? 
Even as late as midday on Monday Maedana and Francois decided to find some instrumentals as background beat from Youtube.
"Oh when!  Oh when! will we be finished so we can celebrate how we made our Song SING!"
