- About Us
In the summer term we worked hard to create our own performance of a scene from Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. We hope you enjoy it.
Today we spent the afternoon designing and making our own percussion shakers. We were inspired by the animals of Borneo and used vibrant animal prints and feathers to decorate our musical instruments. We carefully planned our designs and labelled all the equipment we would need before getting started. We used dried lentils and rice to add inside our cardboard tubes before creating a lid on the end with tissue paper and securing with elastic bands. This proved to make a successful 'rattling' sound, the perfect percussion shaker!
