Year 5 drumming workshop..
‘What an amazing workshop. Lucky was so interesting to listen to and I have learnt a lot’.
‘To have the chance to play the djembe drum was great fun. It is something I will never forget doing’.
These two quotations sum up the experience really well. As part of their topic on Africa, Year 5 were treated to a wonderful drumming workshop. The children were taught how to hold the djembe drums and how to vary the sound produced by placing their hands on different parts of the skin. Following this introduction they worked as a team to write and perform a rap song which they will be sharing at a later date.
