We have really enjoyed our space topic this half term. Our music focus allowed us to listen and respond to Holst's The Planets as well as learn all about Holst himself. After creating our own ostinato, we composed a piece of music using various instruments. Our visit from the stardome allowed us to explore the night sky and learn about the solar system.
