SUNNY Jamaican sounds lit up Fernhurst Primary School pupils when the Irie Steel Pan Workshops, run by husband-and-wife team Junior and Marcella, paid a visit.

The workshop kicked off with a rousing steel pan rendition of the theme tune from Match of the Day, which got all the footballing fans on side, followed up by a hit parade from pop songs to nursery rhymes.

“There were questions, quizzes and plenty of opportunities to dance around the school hall ,” school administrator Fiona Atkinson said. “Following the performance, Class 3 enjoyed a personalised workshop, when all the children got a chance to have a go at playing both the bass and tenor steel drums.

“Smiling faces left the hall after a thoroughly entertaining time that, whilst being fun, also provided a great opportunity for the children to expand their musical knowledge.”
