Classroom Learning Years 5 and 6
Our main focus this term has been to listen to 'Mars'... The Bringer of War' from 'The Planet Suite' by Gustav Holst.
This music is called 'Program Music' because it is composed intentionally to make you think about a particular place, person or event.
To support our written work we have done lots of practical activities you can see in the videos below. This has deepened our understanding of how a composer uses the 'Musical Elements' to spark the imagination of the listener.
This will help us next term when we compose our own piece of music we will call 'Earth... The Bringer of Life'
