This week Spruce class had a surprise visitor. We had a drumming workshop with Martin, who taught us different techniques of African drumming, using our hands and other actions such as clapping. We drummed to a rhythm and developed an understanding of beat. We had an amazing time! We also celebrated Black history month by learning about Mary Seacole, the famous nurse who helped injured soldiers. In art, we had a super experience because we made clay pots using the ‘pinching’ technique. We enjoyed this very much-it felt like we were living in ancient times!
