Let's relive the excitement and vibrancy of the 2016 Brazilian Olympics! Our Samba Drumming workshops will introduce your pupils to the sounds and rhythms of traditional Samba drums and percussion.
Recycling, secondary transition, friendship or bullying - choose the topic to suit you and get your JUNK FUNK on! Then we will up the ante with our unique Scrap Raps - again, on ANY topic of YOUR choice.
Junk Funk pushes the creative boundaries of your pupils, giving them the opportunity to really express themselves by experimenting with new sounds. They will learn to see the rhythmic possibilities in objects such as step ladders, brooms, buckets and baking trays. Hard hats, highly visible jackets and boiler suits will get your pupils looking the part and ready to FUNK that JUNK!
JUNK FUNK & SCRAP RAPS: The 3 Rs
Our popular Junk Funk recycling workshops focus on the 3 Rs rule of recycling: reduce, reuse or recycle. Whilst using catchy rap rhymes to remember these 3 rules (and which categories some of the most common everyday items would fall into), your pupils will discover that you can actually make music from many of these items by transforming the ‘Junk’ into ‘Funk’.
JUNK FUNK & SCRAP RAPS: Year 6 Transition
What better way to prepare your year 6 pupils for the big leap to secondary school, than a specially tailored YEAR 6 JUNK FUNK workshop! This workshop will fill your pupils with positive and uplifting messages that will inspire them for the year ahead. The sense of achievement will leave your pupils excited and ready for the new experience of secondary school.
CREATE YOUR OWN JUNK FUNK & SCRAP RAPS!
The beauty about our Junk Funk and Scrap Raps workshops is that we can create a workshop just for you! If you let us know your chosen theme, whether it be road safety or online bullying, we can create some Scraps Raps tailored for your sessions.
By using a range of junk and household objects, your pupils will have the opportunity to create their own brand new Junk Funk Orchestra along with learning your own unique Scrap Raps.
Junk: We’ll provide a wide range of ‘junk’ for everyone to play. But please feel free to collect some of your own during the weeks leading up to our session.
Performance: Although a performance is optional, we strongly encourage this at the end of each session. This allows parents, teachers and peers to share in the children’s success.
"Our Drumming day was just the BEST!!! I had a feeling that it would be good! The pupil sessions were great - the enthusiasm of your Facilitator just encouraged all children to get involved. The staff session was OUTSTANDING - such good fun - we didn't want to stop. So I want to look at another date in the summer term - to involve a performance to our parents at the end of the day. You should feel very proud of the activities you take into schools. Thank you! "
