Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a seaside themed musical day during our Music Workshop, run by the talented Jo. All children enjoyed the opportunity to explore and use a variety of percussion instruments. Moreover, new learning came in the form of playing the spoons. Everyone learnt new skills, and nobody minded the stinging thighs and hands from their over enthusiastic performance! A day of practise culminated in a show for parents and pupils, which included a feast for the ears and the eyes as the children created a seaside scene with blankets, scarves and percussion instruments. This was followed by a fabulous action song, musical spoons solos and finally a sea shanty accompanied by spoons. Jo commented on the children’s focus, which allowed them to achieve more than was originally expected of such young children.
An enjoyable day all round.
