KS1 Music: Thunder Jam - Express yourself

Ben, Mia, Akshay, Ajay and Lottie are asked to play on stage by punk musician Poly Styrene.

Ben, Mia, Lottie and the twins are taken back in time to 1970s London in the middle of the punk music scene.

The group learn how to make DIY instruments from recyclable materials but panic when they find out that they have to perform at the end of term.

Punk rock star Poly Styrene helps the group overcome their fear when she asks them to join her on stage as her band.
