· To compose and create a rap (with beat if possible) about bullying
How did you go about achieving this? Working hard and collaborating because I have been working really hard on creating my rap and also collaborating to get new ideas to create the rap.
What resources were used to help you? Learner Zone because it had a lot of answers that helped me on my rap, and Mr McCallum himself.
Did you go through the process on your own or collaborate with other people? Collaborating with others because working alone can be easy but you need to know all the answers.
How did you find the process? Easy and hard because some bits of the rap we couldn't get right and the easy bits were getting some choruses down that ended with easy rhyming words.
What did you enjoy most about the process of creating a rap? Getting parts of the rap perfect because we can get onto lots of exciting and fun choruses.
What might be your next step? Get the whole rap finished and sounds perfect because we don't want to read it out loud to everyone when it actually doesn't make sense.
Name Of The Song
Dark And Light
Don’t be a bully just spread the plea
We don’t like people victims just let them be
We know Mr Bully, we know everything
You may be my friend now but you hurt me everywhere
Give Me An M an R an B an U an L an L and a Y
We don’t like it at all
Dark And Light we choose light
But you Mr Bully, you may choose but you ain’t no friend
Try to be the one who’s polite
We know how you started it
Your one who's afraid
Don’t be bully be a friend
Or your gonna be in thinking spot

We were given ideas for creating a back beat via a website – HTML5 – Drum Kit
