As an end of year treat, we went to up to Papdale School to learn to play the steel pans today. It was very noisy and so much fun!
There were bass, tenor bass, seconds, guitar and tenor pans. It was harder than we first thought but we started to get the hang of it. We were learning to play The Banana Boat Song which is a traditional song from Jamaica. It was great to learn a bit about a musical culture belonging to some of the teams that will be competing in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
I will try to upload the video clip soon.
Take a look back at the Sports Day post as I have added more photographs.
