Street dancing and rap writing in 5

Year 5 were luckily enough to take part in two fantastic workshops over the last couple of weeks – street dancing and rap writing. We were joined by the amazing Isaiah Dreads and Alex for rap writing and Isaac took our street dancing masterclass.

For our rap writing session, Isaiah treated us to an example of his work which blew us all away. He then talked us through how he goes about writing raps before setting us a task to do our own in a group. Using rhyming words, we crafted outstanding raps and performed them to the class.


Our street dancing masterclass taught us a range of different moves that we had never hear before including the Bart Simpson, the Rambo and the pizza party. We started though by learning to bounce with the music before the classic moves were introduced. Isaac broke out some old school tunes and we put our moves together to create a choreographed piece. We ended the session with a dance circle where we got to show off our new dancing skills.
