Class 5 - Mrs Morgans' and Mrs Perry's Class

African Drumming

Class 5 experienced an African drumming workshop which was part of our topic of "Sound".  We learned how the djembe drums made a sound and how we could make the sound louder by tilting our drums off the floor to let air vibrate more. 

We had great fun following the rhythms played for us and learned an African beat to play - it sounded brilliant when we all played it together - jabba jabba djembe, jabba jabba djembe...

Mr Maher showed us a cool way to stop - when he played "Rhubarb and Custard" we needed to play our rhythm one  - jabba jabba djembe - and stop dead.  We almost got there! 

Drumming "Simon Says" was also good fun and when we heard "Rhubarb and Custard" we all knew what we were supposed to do!
