Music Blog Post

Walt compose and create a rap ( with a beat if its possible )  about bullying.

I achieved this by working with my friends and letting them have a say in what they think we should do.

The resources i used are the videos we got shown to help me  think of some Rhymes and raps also I used the html5 drum kit.

For my rap I worked with Jack and Joey. We all chose a piece of it.

The process of making a rap was exciting and a new experience for me.

The thing I enjoyed the most about making a rap is that we could chose what we wanted to write.

Here is our bullying rap
 Bullying is not cool
We´ll throw you in a swimming pool
We might tell Mr Rule
Also he is not a fool.

Dance reflection

In dance we have been doing two dances, the Cha Cha  and a Hip Hop routine.

I learnt how to do the alemana turn and the train in the Cha Cha.

I have surprised myself by being able to do the hip hop routine, when i thought that I would be terrible.

I have been challenged by the Cha cha and trying to get all the moves right
