Air Guitars and Diversity

We kicked off Diversity Week by learning about the links between aspiration and diversity. The children listened to the story Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow by Gary Golio. In the story they find out how Jimi Hendrix went from playing air guitar on a broom in his bedroom, to his dad buying him a guitar for $5, then becoming the pioneer of rock guitar. We learnt about how Hendrix took inspiration from the Blues guitarist his dad listened to like BB King.

The highlight of our day was definitely having an air guitar session to both BB King and Hendrix.
