Drumming away Winter and singing in Spring with Poco Drom and Avon Wildlife Trust

Isn’t everything better when the sun is shining? What a beautiful, sunny Spring day we were blessed with when we headed back to Bristol to Willsbridge Mill to spend the afternoon drumming away Winter and singing in Spring with Avon Wildlife Trust.

We started by remembering all the sleepy animals who had hibernated their way through Winter like the bats, dormice, bumble bees and snails. We then headed out amongst the trees and sang about frogs and migrating birds.

We then told the story of the Winter bear who brings back Spring when he wakes from his hibernation. Can you remember what animal woke him with it’s buzzing????

We finished off with a fantastic family drum circle with lots of animal dancing and howling!
