Year 2 Parents Enjoy a Ukulele Workshop!
We had a fabulous time this morning when a large group of Year 2 parents came to join their children for a Ukulele workshop. The adults joined in wonderfully and it was lovely to see everyone playing together and experiencing the joy and delight of ensemble playing. Mrs Slaven, the headteacher at St Leonard’s Primary School, kindly lent us 20 of her ukuleles, so along with the ones that Exwick Heights already own, there was just about enough for one each, parents and children. We covered holding the ukes, basic strumming technique, the names of the strings and learnt to play a chord of C…. whilst singing at the same time! Impressive stuff! The session ended with a final performance of all that we had learnt. The children and I certainly had a fabulous time – we hope that the adults enjoyed it as well. Thank you for coming and for taking part with such enthusiasm and gusto!
