Egyptian Music & Dance

This week, Year 2 were involved in an exciting Egyptian Music and Dance Workshop. 

They were first introduced to a selection of ancient instruments such as wind, string and percussion.  Following a drumming demonstration, the children were keen to have a go themselves responding particularly well to variations in rhythm, pace and pitch.  They developed confidence at using a large frame drum and a tambourine.  Everyone also danced energetically to Egyptian music and mastered an effective dance routine.  It was certainly a fun-filled morning and enriched our topic on Ancient Egypt.
