Both Year 6 classes are rehearsing ahead of a percussion concert taking place at the Royal Festival Hall next month. We have been having weekly drumming sessions with our friends from Southwark Music Service since the start of the school year.
Year 6 staged a Winter Concert in December. The students impressed our tutors and were then selected to take part in the South Bank concert. We will be preforming on stage with other students from around the borough.
Our current focus is to prepare for the performance. Year 6 are learning the individual songs, and then sequencing them all together.
The show tells the story about some children who visit a place called Perc Town. Each year a rhythmic festival takes place. Our contribution to the show will to supply the rhythm!
As well as drumming there are many songs and other rhythmic actions to learn. Parents and carers will soon be receiving an invite for the show that takes place on 5th February.
