28th April 2017
On Friday 28th April 2017, children from Key Stage 2 were taken to the first Jazz Concert for Schools, part of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival events. They learnt some of the terms used in Jazz such as ‘jamming’, ‘cats’, ‘burning’ and ‘walking the bass’! They also learnt about the most commonly used instruments used in Jazz bands, different types of jazz music and the origins of jazz music. Everybody had a ‘swinging’ time!
