We thought about different elements and aspects that make the UK such as British values, the Queen, armed forces and the NHS. We worked with our shoulder partners to compose some lyrics and we had to think of lots of rhyming words. Mr Brown showed us his acoustic guitar, it was loud. However, he then showed us his electric guitar and it was SUPER LOUD! 

He Performed a song called 'White man driver', it was AMAZING!
