Diwali Musical Workshop

6th November 2019
Children in Year had an 'enlightening' morning this week when they took part in musical workshop, led by Jim Bernardin of World Music Workshops. The theme of the workshop was 'Diwali', which is the Hindu festival of lights. The children learnt about the observances for Diwali and also compared the similarities between that and the Christian celebration of Christmas. They then formed an orchestra and performed drum-based rhythm pieces. Jim made sure that each section was secure in their rhythm before bringing the next section, building up a marvellous blend of harmonies and rhythms.  They all concentrated very hard and every child contributed to the whole. Well done, Year 3, you look as if you're enjoying yourselves!
