Peregrines have been learning about the importance of percussion and rhythm in reggae music this term. Children have designed their own percussion instruments and each brought in a wide variety of recycled pots, bottles, tubes and boxes to make an instrument they can hit or shake to make a sound. The shakers were filled with a range of rattly materials, including bottle tops, popcorn seeds, rice and lentils. This week we covered our containers in glue and strips of newspaper, which dried to a hard shell overnight. Children then chose their own patterns and colours to paint their instruments with their design ideas. The instruments will feature in a performance for our class assembly after half term on Friday 28th February.
