NOISY pupils of Cuddington Primary School have been using some unusual items to make music.

As part of a workshop touring school across the country, children used household utensils to play tunes in a variety of styles.

Building materials, metal pots and pans, wooden spoons, plastic pipes and bins acted as instruments during the creation of South American music such as samba and mambo.

The Bash Your Trash workshop was run by a musician from Blackpool who taught the Ash Road pupils about beat, rhythm and working as a team to produce music.

A Year 5 pupil said: “Everyone was split into groups and given an instrument. Then we all had to play our instruments while dancing in a circle.

“After that we had to make our own tunes to go with the song. It was great.”
