    'The Art session in the morning was wonderful and we were all amazed at what Kwame could create with a plastic milk bottle! The African masks were great too, although I know that the children didn't have as much time as they would have liked to get them finished. As a year group, we are thinking of making African mask-making part of our art for this unit next year.

     

    The music and dance session in the afternoon was amazing. I was so impressed by the amount of drums Kwame had brought with him. It was wonderful that each child had their own drum to play and that they could play together as a whole group; the sound was fantastic. They absolutely loved it and are still singing the song Kwame taught them to this day!

     

    On behalf of year 3 at Clanfield Junior school I'd like to day a HUGE thank-you.'
