African Drumming Workshop

This term Year 2 are learning all about Africa. We have a number of exciting lessons planned to increase children's knowledge of Africa, from learning about the animals that live there, finding out about a typical school day in an African village and learning about the climate, historical sites, art, language and culture in this fascinating part of our world.


On 15th January, a professional drummer – Mr Abass Dodoo came in to school to teach the children about African drumming and dance. Mr Dodoo was born in Nsawam in south Ghana into a famous family of African master drummers.


Needless to say, the children thoroughly enjoyed a very noisy and creative workshop!
