Years 3 and 6 ‘get into the groove’!
This morning we welcomed music specialist, Mr Bamford into school who led a Brazilian Samba workshop for Year 6 pupils. They learned to play a variety of percussion instruments, layering numerous different rhythms to create an effective carnival style performance. Even the staff were inspired to join the carnival, displaying hidden dancing talents!
This afternoon the Year 3 pupils were treated to a Bamboo Tamboo workshop which gave them an opportunity to develop rhythmic, listening, ensemble and musicianship skills through playing rhythmic patterns on imitation bamboo sticks. The pupils enjoyed playing different rhythm games where they were challenged to beat the teacher!
