Autumn Term Topic - Gustav Holst's The Planet Suites

Last term's topic is a musical one as we studied The Planet Suites composed by Gustav Holst. In topic lessons we studied each piece of music, learning about how the mood can be changed through choice of instrument and dynamics. 

This theme carried on into our Science lessons with our Solids, Liquids and Gases Science topic and in English as we studied information writing about space using many different sources for inspiration.
