A competition for Year 8's, using the curriculum to create songs...

The aim of the Sing to the Future: Language Beatz is for students in Year 8 to practise and improve their foreign language skills (any language they are learning in school), by transferring language from the KS3 curriculum into catchy, memorable song lyrics. 

It is about harnessing the power of music for learning.  Music, rhythm and song make words memorable.  Using music creatively in groups for language learning is both motivating and effective.

 

The competition element is voluntary and offers an opportunity to showcase what has been created.
