Ukulele with Aidan
Even if you don't have a ukulele at home you can follow along to these music lessons with Aidan, made especially for our class. If you do have a ukulele, watch to the end for some ukulele practise.
Make Your Own Rainstick
Seeing as we are learning all about the rainforest this week, why not make your own rainstick instrument.
All you will need is:
a cylinder (e.g. a kitchen roll, tinfoil roll, clingfilm roll, pringles tub etc)
some tinfoil to put inside
rice (or other small dried kernels or pasta broken up into small pieces)
materials to decorate it however you like
You can watch the video below to see how they made theirs.
We have been doing great at learning to play the Ukulele this year. If you are lucky enough to have one at home that you can practice with then be sure to check out the Ukulele Licence videos below or on their YouTube channel.
