As a special treat at the end of a wonderful year of playing recorder, Year 4 took part in the Camden Ceilidh at Cecil Sharp House.
Year 4 have spent the summer term learning 5 popular folk tunes in their Monday recorder lessons with Miss Layill. Yesterday, we joined 150 other Primary musicians from across Camden to play and dance in a traditional Ceilidh. There were Recorders, violins, cellos and a large ensemble of Brass instruments, as well as an adult Ceilidh band on stage. As well as our Recorders, Mrs Wright played her accordion and Miss S played her guitar.
We all took turns to play and dance, so everyone had a chance to get up and try out our moves. We enjoyed the experience of dancing with lots of children from other schools and loved being part of such a fun way to make music together as a community in such a beautifully historic building, right on our doorstep!
We hope to continue to play more Folk music in school next year.
