September 2016 in Year 5/6

In D&T we have been investigating rockets. We designed and created our own rockets and enjoyed firing them to see how far they would go. In history we have been looking at the Space Race and how the Cold War in the 1950s and 60s impacted on space exploration. In Dance we designed our own sequences to Holst’s The Planets suite (Jupiter), using fluency, counter tension and balance to create different motifs. We also researched some of the world’s greatest mountain ranges to inspire us in our teamwork.
