Laurie Dash and Maggie Howell report on their class assembly.
On Friday 28th November Class Six performed an assembly. It was based on our topic; ‘The Earth and Beyond’, as well as global and environmental issues.
The assembly opened with a piece of music from Holst’s Planet Suite: ‘Mars, the Bringer of War’. Next we talked about historical theories that been held about the Earth. The Romans and the Greeks believed that the Earth was at the centre of the Universe, with everything else revolving around it. Then we talked about Galileo who made exciting discoveries using a superior model of a telescope based on one that had been built in Holland. We performed our own compositions in which we explored Earth’s nature, because Earth is not mentioned in the Planets Suite.
After the pieces of music we had composed, it was Ms Johnson’s half of the assembly. This was begun by talking about environmental issues such as deforestation and global warming. We had started our topic by watching a video of ‘Hey You’ by Madonna. It was made for a series of concerts called ‘Live Earth’. That was shown as everyone was leaving the assembly. Some of us read poems on different worldwide issues. It was all completed when we sang a song called ‘What’s It Worth, Planet Earth.’
Lots of parents complimented the class on the assembly we had put together. All in all, we enjoyed it thoroughly and hoped that everyone who came to watch did too.
