Danny Staples

 

Danny Staples came to visit Reception and Year 1 with his amazing collection of musical instruments.
He told us how the instruments were made and played and where they came from.
We listened carefully and had a chance to play the instruments, some individually and some as a group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Instruments are played in different ways.
You can....

 


 

blow,

 bang or tap,

 or shake.

 In what other ways can you play instruments?
Look at these photographs and work out how we played each instrument.

 

This instrument was very unusual underneath.
Do you know why it was made that way?

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 This 'instrument' did a dance for us.
Can you work out how?

 


Some of the instruments made our feet want to dance!



 

 We had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about sound and music.
Thank you Mr Staples!
