As part of their music curriculum, Year 4 recently took part in an African ‘Djembe’ drumming workshop led by Dr Brendan Renwick.

“It was great because everyone got a drum of their own but it also quite hard because you had to really concentrate on listening to the beat,” said Neve.

“There were some weird instruments as well as the drums,” said Abbey. ” One was made from a huge seed pod and some were made out of shells. Dr Renwick also told us that one instrument was made from goat’s toenails and i’m not sure if he was joking or not!”

The children certainly got a lot out of the session as you can see from the photographs below: [nggallery id=71]
