Year 3 African Drumming

Tuesday 2nd February | 5 comments



At Farsley Farfield Primary School, Year 3 are provided with the opportunity to learn how to play African drums. These can be known as djembes or bougarabous! They have a very distinct sound and can be very loud! The sessions have focused on having a steady rhythm and a sense of beat and pulse.

This morning, Key Stage 2 were delighted to see what Year 3 had been up to. Below are four videos from this morning’s session. The first shows a video of an African tribe whilst the other three show off some of the activities and skills that Year 3 have learned! Well done everyone, you have inspired many, including the staff!
