Baby People - Urban Gongs Tour
Class 2014-2020, Class 2013-2019 on December 9th 2018
In the Summer Term, our current Y5/6 classes had a very exciting day making music as part of the ‘Baby People Urban Gongs’ Tour.
The day began when the whole school were invited to a performance by 'Kayu Gangsa' and 'Baby People' - a fusion of gamelan and hip-hop music. The Year 5/6 children then took part in workshops to write their own songs based on the theme of 'Freedom'.
Scroll down to the bottom, listen to our wonderful compositions and let us know what you think! Please find attached:
