This term in KS3/4 Music we have been exploring the Music of the British Isles. We recorded 2 versions of a traditional Irish tune called "The Star of the County Down". One was a vocal version and the other an instrumental, and then we mixed them together.

Twiky by Robin

Twiky

Eyes like gold
Skin like sand
Sounds like three mice singing at the opera
Small as a rat
And eats like a pig
It loves ladybird's, hates spiders
It dreams of food of a king's standard
Its nightmare is to have nothing in its mouth
Its secret wish is to be king of its kind.

ROMEWPHEIN by Lee

ROMEWPHEIN

I am romewphein
I light up the sky
Like the morning sun
I am romewphein
I'm as small as a mouse
And as big as a mousetrap
I can drill through metal

I get into your fridge and
When you come back I'll be waiting.

I am a phoenix
I come from volcanoes
I light up like a solar flare

If you anger me
I shoot a stream of fire at you
So don't burn me up!

I'm as wise as an owl and
As old as a tree
I'm as fast as a jet and
As soft as a feather

If you listen at night you'll hear my cry
And be soothed like the sea.

By Lee

The Gold Angels by Jessie

The Gold Angels 

People marching in a bunch,
Gold diamonds twinkling
Like a rainbow,
The gold diamonds
Are marching,
To lots of diamonds
And they will see
Lots of butterflies too
Flapping their wings
And they will see
The Queen Butterfly
A Rose Flower,
She is looking
For more butterflies
To circle round
Rose diamonds
And make them
Go to a rainbow

DRACACEEDRA by Joshua

DRACACEEDRA

He's as tall as a block of flats
And he sound like a giant jumping x 2
His skin is scaly and shimmy as goo
His fast eyes are as black as the night
His teeth are white as untouched snow
And sharp as a sharpened pencil
He loves to smell the burning trees
And hear the crash of all the buildings falling
All the buildings falling

There's a secret place hidden in the world
Where Dracaceedra loves to go
It's warm and the sun always shines
In the silence when Dracaceedra is still
As a tree

And he dreams of smashing the world like a glass ball crushed in his hand
He dreams of seeing nothing but shattered earth

By Joshua (10)

ANKUDRA by Japyra

ANKUDRA

I am a slippery beast
From out of the deep
I am so silent
You can't hear a peep
When I wake up
I go to sleep again -
And I can dance
And I can dance
AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN

I am tribal
And I read the Bible
Get reading this book
Or you might get a hook that hurts
The book that bursts like a flame
Then there's no one to blame
Except Ankudra (that's me)
I am a Merlin
I bring books to life
I turn the letters
Into other little beasts
Baby snakes that follow you around
And slither on the ground -

They tell us we must meet then
And they will repair our sky

So we can fly
Like birds
In the wind of our words
