String art in the library

AmyAmy playing at Morning Tea

To continue with our theme of String, Amy performed some music in the library at Morning Tea. The musical instrument she is playing is a guzheng,  or Chinese Zither, which is a long flat instrument that rests on two pedestals. The player has to tape imitation fingernails onto their fingers in order to pluck the strings. The sound it makes is a unique haunting tone.

At Lunchtime we held the Inter-House Spelling Competition with Mr Rowley (below) reading out the words to be spelt.
