Year 2 African Drumming Workshop

Drumming African style!

On Tuesday 2nd May, our Year 2 children took part in an exciting African drumming workshop led by George from Joliba drums. The sessions allowed the children to experience playing real African drums, singing traditional songs and even dancing!

This linked to our topic on Africa where we have been learning all about culture and the similarities and differences between the countries in Africa and the UK. Reception and Year 1 children were invited along at the end of the day to watch a taster performance and sing some songs too! Jessica Webber and Alfie Humphreys from Year 2 said, “We had a really fun day playing the drums. It was exciting to get the chance to play real African drums and the songs were really funny.”
