Black History Month 

This month is ‘Black History Month’ so at Cliffdale we celebrated African-American music in our assembly in honour of this. The children came into the hall to some lively African music, smiling, dancing and playing Djembe drums as they arrived.

The wonderfully talented hand chime club then came to the front to accompany everyone singing a beautiful Afro-Caribbean song called ‘Kum-by-Yah’. This sounded so rich and warm, with the tones of the hand chimes blending with the voices as all the children joined the singing.

Next we learned about the rhythms of Africa, and then two pupils from each class came forward to play rhythms on the Djembe drums, and wave scarfs and everyone enjoyed moving to the beat of the traditional African music. What a joyful time we all had!
