Year 5 - Proud to Be

In October 2021, our Year 5 classes took part in a songwriting workshop during Black History Month. Called 'Proud to Be', the workshop took the chorus of a song and then the children learned to write short rap sections with rhyming couplets on the theme of being proud. Over 1000 children from across the city took part in these workshops and their ideas were pooled together to produce the finished song. Hollybrook's Year 5 were then chosen to record the final version of the song and we spent 90 minutes with a film crew working on our recording. The song and video will be used for promoting Southampton's bid to be the City of Culture in 2025. Here it is, we hope you enjoy it:
