The younger pupils had a brilliant time using non-traditional instruments to create pieces of marching music, whilst the older children learned some Brazillian Samba drumming techniques.
We hope that Mrs Whelan’s hearing will soon recover!
Ashley and Sarah Parnell, who provide school’s music tuition service, invited us to join Robert Miles Junior, Carnarvon and Flintham schools for a week of celebrating the arts.
Developing the theme of “Water”, pupils from the four schools came together to participate in a variety of creative activities.
The orchestra day culminated in a concert in St Mary’s Church, Bingham, where our young musicians gave a very polished performance.
As well as groups of children from the four schools joining together, individual schools offered art and drumming activities for all.
The Parnells are in school at 3.40pm, on Tuesday, 18th June, for parents whose children wish to try out a musical instrument.
