Year 3 Drumming!

This half term we have been learning how to play the djembe drums. Over the half term we have learnt that djembe drums originate from West Africa and were used to communicate between tribes over long distances.

To help us remember the different rhythms we have used familiar phrases and sentences like ‘eggs and bacon’ and ‘yum yum tastes like chicken’. You might have heard us singing these at home.

Next half term we will be learning how to play the samba drums. We are very excited! What do you think of our final djembe performance?

Harvest Festival

During the week commencing 15th October, we will be celebrating Harvest Festival within school.
This year we will be asking the children to think of others who are perhaps less fortunate than us. This year we would like to help the Daily Bread Food Larder (CARE) who hand out emergency food parcels to local people experiencing difficulties in finding money to purchase food.
We would be most grateful if you could support us in collecting tinned and dried foods and toiletries. There will be a central collection point in the school reception area from Monday 16th October until 9am on Thursday 18th October.
Let me take this opportunity to say “Thank you” in anticipation of your response in helping others within our community.
