Year 7 had an amazing workshop with a French juggler/musician on Friday 28th September. Our membership with Alliance Française offers us the opportunity to have some cultural events, this was one of them.
Vincent de Lavenere was our guest and the students enjoyed learning some basics in juggling using a variety of objects such as balls, tuned balls or plastic bags. They displayed great ability to understand French in a real situation of communication with the artist.
The students learned a lot from him as they discovered that he is involved in an ongoing research on connecting juggling to musical composition. Vincent de Lavenere explained to them that he works with mathematicians regularly to match mathematical, musical and juggling sequences and patterns.
