The day started with a fantastic visit the BBC Radio Sheffield breakfast to talk to Toby Foster about the day ahead. Katie was joined by Millie, Martha and Millie from Dore Primary School who talked about their Samba Club and had fun explaining what instruments they had learned to play!

Last November, 40 staff from schools that are part of Sheffield Children’s University joined together in a session, where they received their very own Samba kit and supporting lessons plans. The Sheffield Music Hub led the event, introducing the staff to the instruments, and the rhythms and techniques of Samba styles before releasing them back to share their learning with pupils from each of their schools. Since then, they have been using their ‘Samba in a Box’ kits to hone their pupils’ Samba skills, perfecting a piece ready for this celebration event, which was a great start to the build up for the Rio Olympics!
We were joined at the Crucible by the Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillor Anne Murphy and Councillor Chris Peace who both joined in on the action and played their very own agogo bells!
