Today, year 6 took part in a Samba workshop with Mrs Clough from North Somerset Music Service. During this session, the children learnt about the origin of Samba music and how it is part of Brazilian culture. They looked at instruments they had previously learnt about and were introduced to new ones. After a warm up, the children were shown how to play each of the instruments, then they had the opportunity to play each one. Finally, they put together some Samba music as a class and then in groups.
We certainly got into the carnival spirit!
