In Year 2, we started our computing unit on Creating Music by listening to some compositions and describing how they make us feel.

The music was written by Gustav Holst – he wrote a piece of music about each planet in our solar system.

Listen to the pieces for yourself – how do they make you feel?

  1. Mars, the Bringer of War

2. Venus, the Bringer of Peace

3). Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity

Working with our partners

Some children added their own words to describe the music: romantic, ferocious, brave, ‘like standing on a lily pad’, ‘like I’m in an action movie’,
