Klezmer music

Oak Class have started on a new topic about Judaism. Mr Ross invited one of his friends to demonstrate to Oak and Elm what Klezmer music sounds like! She was called Seonaidh. We really enjoyed the music and asked Seonadih about Klezmer music, and about a band that she was in. She told Oak that the main 3 instruments are: clarinet, fiddle and an accordion. She also told us that this type of music is often played at weddings. The music started off slowly and then got faster and faster and was very exciting.Miss Carpenter played a song with Seonaidh, and she was fantastic!

Oak Class then learned some Jewish Circle dances in the Hall. First we were shown some basic dance steps and then we split into groups to create our own Circle dances .
Miss Carpenter played her Accordian for us and we each demonstrated the dance in front of the rest of the class. We worked really hard at this and had a great time.
