The children really enjoyed finding out about the instruments, loved listening to the music and joined in by clapping and singing a song.

Pupils were told folk music brings people together and encouraged the children to think about learning to play an instrument themselves.

The Portsmouth Music Hub are currently touring schools to teach them about folk music and get children enthused about music.

The assembly finished with Nicola doing a clog dance for the children whilst the other musicians played folk music from England.
