Finland - The School of the Future

Five classes ( age 10-12) and almost 120 students in our school made the lyrics last year almost two years ago. I gave them the rhythm and they wrote lines about their ideas, hopes and dreams what , how and why they would like to study in the future. The melody is composed, played and arranged by our kind, bright and talented music teacher TUOMAS JAUHIAINEN. The students on this video are my own class, 5.B. They are 11 yrs old now.
For the past two years we in Finland have been redoing our National curriculum as well as local ones. The curriculum work has been the topic also in Mäntsälä: the students, teachers and officials have been working intensively. And now the job is done!!!! - In Mäntsälä at Kirkonkylä school we also made a song, sort of like a rap, about the new curriculum and the school of the future. We made up the words , lyrics , in classrooms  -together: I and the students . It was a lot of fun. "We are friends, we take care of each other, we like to learn and we discover, research and study everywhere, not only at school. We even dream about making excursions to the moon.

So nice that the students has contributed, both with the writing of the song, the singing and instruments! Not many songs in Schoolovision with rapping, but your students are very good at it! Great song!

Good luck from Norway!

We like the fact that the students made the music themselves.
The music is flowing and has a good background beat.

Good luck from Sweden =)
