This week Charles Dickens Primary School were visited by Metzo Djatah, a famous Senegalese Musician and The British Council. The British Council is launching a new exciting project which, through sharing expertise and resources, children all over the work can use singing to develop their musicality and support wider learning.
Metzo shared a popular Senegalese song with the whole school before teaching the choir and then the choir taught the whole school. We think it sounded pretty great and it was hugely exciting to have such a well known singer performing in our school.
By establishing a tradition of shared performance, with countries posting performances online and collaborating with their neighbours, it is our hope that all young people will benefit from the use of singing throughout their learning.
