Y6 Samba Workshop

26 June 2007

Our Year 6 pupils have been enjoying making lots of music this term as part of teir excellence and enjoyment curriculum. Clive Foden came in to school to work with the children on World Music.

The children were treated to a fantastic Samba music experience which enabled them to create the music of 'Carnival'. Samba comes from Brazil and involves a rich tapestry of sound, full of textures created by percussion instruments. The children were able to play Cirdo drums, a-go-go bells, tambars, shakers and other instruments in their 'Carnival Creation!'.
