Wensum Sings

Thursday afternoon and we gather on the field for Wensum Sings! This was the first time that we have been together as a school since March last year and it was wonderful. Each year team had been learning a couple of songs to perform to the school and also performed instrumental music with their Sistema tutors. The weather was beautiful and there was a great, almost festival-like atmosphere as we shared in music and song together. An impromptu rendition of ‘Three Lions’, led by Year 5 provided a special opportunity for a whole school sing along. Enjoy the gallery.

Building our own instruments

After a 6 week introduction to Samba with our Brazilian Samba tutor Duda, Year 6 started the next phase of their work by building their own Samba percussion instruments. Hammers, nails, pliers, bench hooks, (hundreds of) beer bottle tops and much laughter, kids started work by making their own Ganza which is a Samba shaker. They will be continuing this work over the coming weeks, building a range of different percussion pieces. It was a lovely atmosphere; really focussed and happy. Can’t wait for the performance!
