3rd Form Sea Shanties

02 July 2021

 

During English lessons in the Spring term, the 3rd Form explored the skills and techniques of writing song lyrics. Using the recently popular Sea Shanty, ‘The Wellerman’, as a model, each boy composed their own lyrics about school to fit the song. I was asked if this term we could try to bring some of those lyrics to performance, so in each of the two sets we compiled one song, with each boy contributing his chosen best lyric from his own song. We hope you enjoy these two final versions of the 3rd Form ‘Wellerman Song’ project. No prizes for guessing which member of staff the boys chose to include in both songs!
