Royal Jubilee Song Writing Challenge
To celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Doncaster Stories has set a new challenge for Doncaster Schools! Phil has created the below video to help schools write a song for the Queen. We're changing the lyrics from the Christmas carol 12 days of Christmas to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II spending 70 years on the throne - the longest serving monarch in history! The challenge has been split into three steps:
  1. Ideas for the gifts - swap out the Christmas gifts for something spectacular for the Queen, the more imaginative the better.
  2. Counting syllables - make sure that your ideas fit to the rhythm of the original song
  3. Write the song!
