On Monday, Children's Houses had a visit from Alec, of Child's Play music. The children spent a wonderful hour learning about how Alec's amazing instruments, (all made from recycled materials), worked and having a go at playing them. The various drums were particularly popular. Finally they formed an orchestra and with Alec conducting they learned some orchestral terms and practised playing together just like a real orchestra does! Some of the instruments had funny names like the Thongophone and the Balloon Bassoon.
