Recycling rhythm & rhyme!
Funky Junk provides an opportunity to explore the world through the things we throw away, drawing on old newspapers for lyrics and rubbish for music making.
The morning session produces the lyrical content of our song, using stimulus from the morning’s newspaper headlines, cut and pasted into shape. This liberating take on literacy learning, calling on the words of others for inspiration, creates a melting pot of rich vocabulary and offers a unique creative stimulus.
In the afternoon we make our own instruments and record the beat and backing track. Then we gather together for the final chorus of the day to sing our lyrics over the beat, creating something brand new; from something ready for the bin!
