Year 4 have really enjoyed the first science block this week which was all about the science of sound. They enthusiastically experimented with different instruments and everyday objects, to see how they could get them to make a sound. Through their observations, the objective was to identify that a sound is made when an object vibrates. They then had to focus on how they could change the volume and pitch of a sound and identify how this changed the way the object vibrated. The children mastered the use of some new vocabulary, including vibrate, molecules, pitch and volume and were able to describe whether the object vibrated less, more, slowly or quickly when it made different sounds. The children relished the opportunity to make as much noise as they could whilst learning some new scientific concepts.
