African Workshop

Our Year 5 pupils took part in African Drumming and Dancing workshops this week as part of their current topic on Africa.

The day started with an assembly for our Year 3, 4 and 5 pupils where they listened to Steven, the workshop facilitator, sing and play a traditional African song using a djembe drum.

In class groups, year 5 learnt about African culture, how beating on different parts of the djembe drum produces a different sound and also some African dance moves.

After these workshops, the year 5 pupils performed to Year 3 and 4. They were spectacular!


'The workshops were really fun. Steven was very entertaining and positive. His drumming skills were amazing and he kept our enthusiasm going.' Callum 5Q
