Bang the Drum

 The Bryan Adams Foundation sponsored Year 5 to participate in the Bang the Drum project. 

Mr Adams paid us a visit at the Notting Hill Community Church so that he could participate in our rehearsal with Wormholt school and help the children together with Miss Stiman to learn a song that he had written.

Coincidentally, the song that we were singing to thank him for his sponsorship had the same title as the project - Bang the Drum! It was written for the opening ceremony of the Olympics in 2010 in Vancouver which he sung with Nelly Furtado.

The song was sung beautifully to an audience of KS2 and Bryan Adams.

A few days later, Year 5 were at the Copper Box arena at Stratford Olympic Stadium. They banged the drum for the street children's rights in Brazil with 2000 participants from London. They achieved the Guinness World record of the world's largest Samba band!

The Bang the Drum project will continue to run in year 5 Music lessons until the end of 2016. Raising money for the street children in Brazil, year 5 will perform as a Samba band to parents and will conclude by gaining their Artsaward Discover.
