On Wednesday 10th November the wonderful Jeff Rich, former drummer with Status Quo, visited the children in Key Stage Two to lead a drumming workshop.
As well as learning about the wide variety of drums from across the world and the origin of drumming, the children had hands on experiences. Every child accompanied Jeff using percussion instruments as he played, and a selected few even experienced playing along with him on the drums.
Jeff shared his personal journey from his humble beginnings in Hackney to his time with Status Quo and Def Leppard to present day, touring schools across the country. The children learned about the importance of hard work, practise and resilience, which links to the school's Growth Mindset approach to learning - With time and effort, we can achieve our goals.
