Now rap is one of the most popular types of music in the world. In the 1990s, DJs and musicians used computers to mix many musical styles in order to make dance music. Dance, by artists like Fatboy Slim, is music with a strong rhythm and not many words. Today, popular music is a mixture of many styles, mainly hip-hop, rock and dance music.

This music had a strong rhythm. It developed into rock n roll with electric guitars and a strong beat. The King of rock n roll was Elvis Presley. Elvis had eighteen number-one records in America and made over 30 films! In the USA in the late 1950s and early 1960s, musicians mixed R&B and church music called gospel. This became soul music. The amazing voice of Aretha Franklin made her The Queen of Soul. In the 1950s in the UK, musicians mixed rock n roll with R&B. In 1960, The Beatles and pop music were born. Four years later, The Beatles had records in all of the top five positions in the American music chart! In the 1970s, disco music and disco dancing became incredibly popular. The film Saturday Night Fever was a big influence. The star of this film was a young Italian American actor called John Travolta. At the same time, musicians in Jamaica developed a style called reggae. Bob Marley made reggae popular all over the world. The 1980s was a decade of superstars. The music of singers like Madonna and the Irish group, U2 was popular all over the world, and they are still famous today. Then in New York, a DJ started playing records 6

She was the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn (his second wife). A lot of men wanted to marry her but she never got married or had any children. She said to Parliament, I have already joined myself in marriage to a husband: the kingdom of England. While she was queen, England became a rich and powerful country. Elizabeth Fry Elizabeth Fry was born in Norwich and she was a very religious woman. She always wanted to help other people because she believed God was in every person.

Every year we throw away about four and a half million tonnes. Recycled paper uses 70% less energy than new paper and less water too, so recycling helps all areas of the environment. Do you think about the things you throw away? Do you recycle anything? Every year, each person in the UK throws away about 480 kilos of rubbish. This means that the UK produces about 27 million tonnes of household rubbish every year - about the same weight as 3.6 million elephants! 3 We use over five billion drinks cans every year in the UK. About 42% of these are recycled. Aluminium is one of the easiest materials to recycle and recycling uses only 5% of the energy of producing a new can. It s also very quick it takes six weeks. They take years to break down. Why is there a problem? 2 Every family in the UK uses about 500 glass bottles and jars every year. In 2008, shops gave away about 10 billion plastic bags. That s enough to fill 200 Olympic size swimming pools. But due to an environmental campaign they gave out half this amount by mid When we make paper, glass and plastic, we use natural resources like energy, water and materials such as wood, metal and water. For example, it takes about 30,000 litres of water to make one tonne of paper and 3 4,000 KWh of electricity. We use 10% of the world s oil to make plastic.
