The children have progressed so well over the last term and yesterday they showcased their learning with a real life audience. Over the past term, our children have experimented with the different samba instruments - most of which are unpitched to create different rhythms. Not only that they have developed their cultural understanding as they have watched clips of samba bands from Brazil perform but the children have also learned about pitch, tempo (including the Italian names for the different speeds) and structure too.
It was a delight to hear the different rhythms and for some the children sang alongside too. It was also great seeing the children's concentration and determination shine through as well.
Thank you to our parents and grandparents who attended - it really does mean a lot to our children and gives them a real purpose for their learning.
