‘Fantastic’… that’s what our young people are saying.

What a great start to our 2016-2017 project. We have been exploring African arts, music and dance. It has been really quite an adventure with our amazingly creative young people working hard with our talented practitioners.

We have been creating banners using printing processes.


Mask making using withies and paper tissue.


Djembe drumming.


Interactive story telling.


Drama and movement.


We concluded this term’s adventures with a sharing morning, so we could show everyone what new skills we have learned as well as being an audience to a Djembe performance. It was a great morning, filled with energy, fun and excitement. We finished off the event with a mass Djembe circle where we could all join in in whichever way we wanted.

We can’t wait until next term to return to Africa… stay tuned to see what we get up to next.

Wishing you all a fabulous festive season.

The Funky Pie Crew
