This week as part of our learning challenge 'What African wonders await?', we have been inspired by African drumming and the music of STOMP to use anything and everything as an instrument. The children used anything from plastic bottles and tubs to cardboard boxes filled with rice as instruments. We learnt the terms 'rhythm' and 'beat' and the children began to develop their understanding of pitch with some children even acting as conductor directing the children to be louder or quieter. The children really enjoyed being let loose on the 'instruments' and making lots of noise!
