Year 6 Rocks!

Werrington Primary School

Year 6 Rocks!

   

Werrington Rocks!
As morning dawned on Monday 22 February, Werrington was roused by an invasion of rock bands, the stars of which were year six students.
They had transformed into enthusiastic rockers with their own band names, images, songs and readiness to perform.
Excitement amongst the rock bands was running high and they were itching to begin their individual tours.
By 9am their journey to stardom, and more importantly, to exploring and understanding the different types of genres and writing methods within the literacy framework, was underway.
The students began their tour by developing character descriptions, wikipedia style reports on their individual bands, after which, they chose the all important song lyrics, which they rehearsed and performed in front of their fellow bands, courtesy of year 6’s Nintendo Wii!
To succeed in the rock world, however, it is simply not enough to have the right image and musical talent. Our rockers will need the support and buy-in of the rock world’s big wigs - the people that can take them from no one to someone. The bands will need, therefore, to learn to write persuasive letters and news articles to grab the attention of talent spotters, band managers and media moguls looking for the next big thing.
And the work doesn’t stop there. To maintain momentum in the public eye the bands will be required to write for brochures and posters, as well as to keep an up to date blog for their fan base who will want to follow their every move.
Once they make it big and think its time to reap the rewards, they will be nominated for rock awards and will need to write their acceptance speeches!
It’s a hard life being a year six rocker!
