Year 6 Samba

Last term, Year 6 had been looking at the music of Samba – the music of carnival. They learnt the correct terminology for the instruments involved in Samba and learnt to play these together in a rhythm. They learnt how they all play different rhythms together and listen to the whistle for their cue to start and stop. It is amazing to watch!

Year 6 samba

This half term, we have really enjoyed our samba topic. We have learnt the different types of instruments that make up a samba band as well as were the music originates from. We have played a variety of beats and have become competent at playing as an ensemble.
