Ladybirds and Butterflies joined forces to explore Neptune by Gustav Holst. (Click the planet if you would like to listen to it)

We then used ipads to create our own pieces of music.

Music
This week, we continued to listen to the Planet's Suite by Gustav Holst but we listened to Venus. Again we drew pictures of what we thought or felt and we then compared the two pieces.

A rocket on Venus
If you want to have a listen to the music, click on the planet at the top.
On has a high pitch (venus) and the other one has a low pitch (mars)
Both pieces have violins and trumpets. They both have quiet and loud bits
Mars starts very quiet and becomes very loud but Venus stays in the middle.
Music
In music we have been listening to the Planet's Suite by Gustav Holst. The children listened to Mars and drew a picture of what they felt or thought of.

Christingles
We have been learning about Christingles during our RE sessions. Hopefully the children will be able to tell you all about the different parts and what they mean.

If you have taken a photo of the lit candles, please could you send them to butterflies@moorlandsprimary.net and I will add them onto here.

Year 2 had so much fun exploring the ways of life of medieval knights, nobles and royalty. We made (and ate) bread, designed our own coat of arms, weaved placemats, learned how to do a medieval dance and even played medieval games!
Take a look at what we got up to below...

To start the day we designed our own bread. We found out that bread was eaten during medieval times but we made our breads even tastier, adding cheese, chocolate or raisins (Yum!)  

After making our bread we found out all about coats of arms. We now know what they are for and found out about what different colours, animals and symbols represent. This helped us design our own!

One of our favourite parts of the day was the medieval dancing! This was so much fun especially when the music got faster and we had to keep up!

We had to concentrate really hard to weave our placemats for our banquet.
Under...over...under...over...

Food fit for a king! The bread we made for our banquet was delicious and lots of us tried every flavour. There were only crumbs left after the big bread feast!
