This week we have been learning all about Sound. We investigated lots of different sources of sound, playing close attention to what we could feel when sounds were being made. One word sprung up over and over again that noticed was common to them all..Vibrations!
From this we learnt that sounds are made by vibrations we cannot see.
The following day we moved on to looking at sound waves in detail. We now know whether a sound is high or low pitch, loud or soft just by looking at sound waves!
Our next challenge was to design a listening device using everyday,kitchen items.
Here we are in action
Finally, we carried out an experiment to investigate what happens to the pitch when you tap glass jars full of different amounts of water.
We predicted what we thought would happen and considered how we would make it a fair test.
We decided we would keep the type of jar the same, use the same thing to tap it each time and just change the amount of water. Can you remember what we found out?
Also this week:
In Literacy we have continued to explore the features of newspapers.
We had a dance off in Zumba!
In Art we created winter silhouette scenes using chalk.
