6LD are currently working on a ‘can do’ project which covers learning about recycling and implementing it into music from around the world. Over the past few weeks 6LD have been collecting various recycling materials to make instruments. we made shakers out of plastic bottles and tambourines. We had an amazing session where Ann introduced us to Simon and Tom who taught us about native american music. We danced the afternoon away and are looking forward to more next week.
