Djembe Drumming

Today we had a visit from Rich from Rich Rhythms. He brought his djembe drums from Burkina Faso in Africa to show us. We all learnt how to play different tunes on the djembe drum. We even had a dance party to a traditional African song.

Here are some of our pictures:


We have been learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali. This is also known as the festival of light. We have made diva lamps and learnt the story of Rama and Sita. We designed and made our own Rangoli patterns.




Learning Together Afternoon


A big THANK YOU to all the parents/guardians that joined us for our learning together afternoon. Everyone had a brilliant time and enjoyed a Christmas sing along!


3d shape making

In maths we have been looking at the properties of 2d and 3d shape. We used spaghetti and marshmallow as vertices and edges to make our 3d shapes. We had a great time!

Here are some pictures of the shapes we made:


I made a cube.  It has 8 vertices and 12 edges. - Zak
