On the 28th of March, some brave pupils performed in-front of the whole school some amazing drumming. They have been having lessons for 20 minutes in the previous weeks leading into this day.
Starting the assembly off, Mrs Scott introduced the assembly and what they would be doing throughout. It started with Elana (who is in 4h) and Amber playing a warm up solo which was followed by some brave Year 2 children who performed the backing track from a song by Taylor swift. After that Elijah, played a solo with the two teachers. Other children from across school also performed which was equally fantastic.
The lady in charge explained frequently the benefits of drumming and how they can link to the classroom. One of them was that drumming improves concentration as you have to focus on what you are doing and ignore distractions. At the end of the assembly, everyone clapped loudly as they all greatly enjoyed it.
Thankfully, we learnt that the drumming sessions are going to continue after the holidays and everybody is hoping they are the next child to get a go!
