Seeing, hearing and feeling sound

Class 4/5 are looking at sound across several subjects this term, including manipulating sound in ICT and making musical instruments in D and T, but they are also looking at it in Science too.

They started by learning about sound sources and how sound travels and now we are beginning to do some tests with how we can change sound but one of the first lessons was all about experimenting with everyday objects.

The children had elastic bands, rulers, basic percussion instruments and some rice and they were asked to simply play around with the items and see what they could discover. They wrote up their discoveries about, not only what they could hear, but see and feel too.
