Samba drumming trip
On the 11 of July 2017, Year 5 went on a trip to Pudsey Civic Hall for an amazing samba drumming workshop. There were 5 schools with just below 150 children who participated. We had two workshops with Dan, who was our samba instructor. He taught us two pieces of music. The first piece was called the “hip hop groove”, which was our solo piece, as well as “the power of the music” which we played with four other schools. It was super loud and hurt our ears! However, we really enjoyed trying out all the instruments and learning different grooves. Year 5 had an amazing time using the instruments and wore exhilarated smiles the whole way home. “ It took a lot of hard work and me and the class were very lively and excited!” said Omar afterwards. “We practiced for 2 months until this day finally came. We never gave up our progress and kept going no matter what happened!” agreed Amr. A huge well done to all of Year 5 who performed with confidence and made the accompanying staff feel very proud!
As part of Arts week, we composed our own musical pieces based on the theme of Spring. Then we performed them to the class-can you spot your picture above?
