Year 3 staged a fantastic samba band concert for the rest of the school this week. This was the conclusion of a thirteen-week project, where we have been working with our friends from Southwark Blue Note. Our weekly sessions have introduced Year 3 to the basics of rhythm, keeping a beat and how to build up different sound layers. Each pupil has been able to experiment with all the various percussion instruments within the samba band.
We were thrilled to see so many parents coming out to support Year 3 for our final performance! Under the expert guidance of our bandleader, both Year 3 classes showed how they can respond to the leader and create a beautiful and uplifting piece of musical work. You can watch a video of the fantastic Year 3 performance above.
