Prehistoric Workshop – Norden Primary School

On Monday January 30th Key Stage 2 pupils from Norden Community Primary visited FPHS to take part in an EarthworksGlobal project based on an Australian aboriginal theme. Working with a wide range of hand and power tools the pupils constructed didgeridoos and traditional clapping sticks. Using authentic symbols they began the process of designing the artwork for the instruments which will be continued back at Norden. The pupils were also given advice on how to develop a circular breathing technique to practise for their return visit when they will be creating and performing a musical piece with the instruments they have made.
