Year 3 have been working with Miss Baker from the Hampshire Music service to learn to play West African Percussion instruments. We used words and phrases like “Africa” and “Hear the bell, play the djembe” to help us learn the rhythms. The finished piece was fantastic!
We have also been singing an African song called “Senwa Dedende” which sounded brilliant when all 60 children sang together during our concert yesterday. One of our favourite parts was when our fun partners and parents in the audience were asked to join in too!
We are looking forward to moving on to violins next term.
