5:40pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
PUPILS in year eight at Ipsley RSA Academy in Redditch created a carnival atmosphere on Friday, October 18.
As part of their topic on Brazil and the people of the country, the Glamba Theatrical Percussion Group were invited into school.
Pupils spent the day learning about some of the different instruments used in a samba band and got to grips with some famous grooves and rhythms from movies and the famous Rio Carnival.
Pupil Sian Lynn said: “It was the best day so far we learnt loads and had lots of fun.”
As part of their samba themed lessons, the year eight pupils then performed in a concert at the end of the day for year seven and the staff.
A school spokesman said: “The pupils were a credit to the school and enjoyed the experience immensely. The workshops will now form part of their work on Brazilian culture during next half term. Thank you to everyone involved.”
