African Drumming

These are our compositions using a range of African percussion. We created polyrythms and leant how to write them down using musical notation.

 

More African Masks…

These are some more African Masks we have made today. We’re all about the African Masks at the moment. This time we used our sewing skills. We all learnt that it can sometimes be tricky to thread wool through the eye of a needle. Well done to Phoebe for helping so many people thread their needles and help keep Mr Blake-Lobb sane.

African Drumming

To kick off our Africa topic for this term we had an African drumming workshop with Kwame this morning. We got to hear and play a range of African instruments, sang songs, and danced. It was lots of fun.

You can listen to some of the music we made and danced to here…
