We had a great day yesterday playing African drums with the Y1 and Y2 classes at Great Preston School, Leeds. The day culminated in a performance at the end of the day where the parents were invited. Wow what a turn out by the parents! Sixty parents arrived to watch the African drumming performance by the children! As usual we couldn't let this opportunity go amiss, and we made sure that there was a strong sense of audience participation! When we sung the Djole song with the KS1 class, everybody in the hall took part. Teaching the words was easy, thanks to our trusty song banners. After a few rounds of the verse everybody seemed to pick it up and before long the hall was booming with the chorus:
Wa Wango! Sico Laiko!
What a great day!
Create a thrilling atmosphere in your school that your children will never forget! Have a special day of African drumming workshops to support your arts week and cultural themed day.
