Drumtastic!

Today in our Celebration Assembly we shared our drumming. In music, we have been learning about rhythm and beat. A beat is something that stays the same and a rhythm is different as it is made up of short and long sounds. We have been learning a drum pattern well known in Nigeria called Shiko. We have made up words to do with Winnie the Pooh to help make the rhythms memorable. Here we are drumming in our Monday music lesson. Listen out for the rhythm played 4 times, then 16 beats and a dramatic ending.
