Years 5 and 6 Music Assembly – Thursday 6th June 2019

On Thursday Years 5 and 6 performed music compositions that they had been working on in class. Year 5’s work was based on “Mars” from the Planet Suite by Gustav Holst. They had also listened to “Clair de Lune” by Debussy and one group chose to show their work on that piece. Year 6 have been studying “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Greig and had composed their own versions. It was lovely to hear their pieces and see how well they worked together in small groups. ​
