We at Drumroots have had many years of working in schools to gather a wealth of experience leading exciting and inclusive African drumming and dance workshops to get the most out of children and young people from all backgrounds and from broad demographic boundaries. Until recently we have relied on only the powerful tool of word of mouth, as well as printed testimonials to allow other people to know how effective, uplifting and beneficial our work with children and young people in schools can be. However, keeping up with the times and acknowledging the importance on online media and resources, as well receiving more and more requests from school teachers wishing to see what can be achieved through our workshops, before inviting us into their school or centre, led us to produce this video.

In a single day we ran coordinated African drumming and dance workshops with the children of Stamford Park Junior School, aiming to produce an end of the day performance for the rest of the school and children’s parents — an idea which is becoming increasingly popular as it allows not only the pupils who participate in the workshops to reap the benefits, but also for the whole school, plus teachers and parents to see what can be achieved and to enjoy seeing their friends, pupils and own children performing this amazing art form.

This video was produced with the help and permission Stamford Park Junior, the work of African dancer Sens Sagna, and was filmed and edited by James Kelly of Eskimotion.0

Drumroots and Sens Sagna run exciting, inclusive and engaging African drumming and dance workshops in schools and for people of all ages. For more info, visit the website or call us of: 0161 408 5270.

Children and young people an are often natural musicians without even knowing it, and our Drumroots school workshops are designed to help pupils explore their individual musical abilities, as well as show them the value of working together as a team. Our workshops also focus on motor skills and coordination, whilst emphasising the importance of communication with fellow young drummers to bring out the best in their music.
We work with Infant, Primary and High School pupils, and our workshops can support key areas of the curriculum, as well themed school events such as Arts Weeks and the celebration of world cultures. The individual content and style of workshops reflects the age and ability of the pupils, and we always provide at least two enhanced CRB-checked and insured facilitators, one of whom is HSE certified first aider. We have particular experience of supporting pupils with special educational needs, including Aspergers and Autism. We also work with expelled, excluded and socially disadvantaged youngsters. in addition, we deliver training for teachers, and we are available for after school drum clubs.

ACEMS is proud to present “Mathscraft,” a series of workshops for secondary students and their teachers. The goal of the program is to have students and teachers experience one important aspect of learning mathematics – namely, experiencing the immense satisfaction that comes from creating an idea and developing the idea to a point where you know it is either always right, sometimes right or never right! This video shows how the program works, what the students who took part think of it, and how the program is expanding to include more teachers around the country.

Why After-School Activities for Kids are Essential:

Posted by on Feb 12, 2017 in School Workshops | Comments Off on Why After-School Activities for Kids are Essential:

Nowadays, schools are increasingly offering different after-school activities for kids. If you would like to know more about what we offer, visit live loves learn.

Why are after-school activities beneficial for kids?

Supervision is an important aspect of our after-school workshops. The children are monitored in their habits, behaviors and activities in a positive and creative environment. We seek to make communication between adults and children easier, friendlier and more flexible through the after-school activities for kids that we offer. Supervision and experience with children guarantees a high level of safety, while their engagement in creative activities allows them to discover their potential and develop positive attitudes.Art classes for kids in Sydney have a great impact on kids, not only helping them to explore their creative abilities but also offering them the opportunity to discover their potential. Children are taught how to think and behave positively and the experience of creating new and unique things is extremely enjoyable for them. By remaining engaged in positive things, we help facilitate a more positive perspective on life and promote mental health and development. For more detailed information, visit live love learns.

We also believe in promoting physical activity in order to develop better health and fitness. We encourage the kids to practice different exercises and activities that contribute to improving their health, whether it be cycling, boxing, gymnastics or the like. Other activities will also promote better mental health, giving the kids more energy and enthusiasm. Supervision and experience with children guarantees a high level of safety, while their engagement in creative activities allows them to discover their potential and develop positive attitudes. Better physical and mental health allows the kids to learn with more focus and sincerity.

We draw out and build upon the creative abilities of their kids; parents often tell us they are noticing a creative side in their child they never knew existed! Through these creative activities, the kids gain greater self-confidence and no longer experience behavioral troubles or conflicts.
Development of social skills:

Engaging in new and interesting after school activities for kids helps children develop greater social skills, particularly their communication and interaction with adults. The kids learn to express their thoughts and ideas to the others in the class as well as to their parents.
