Science of Sound
This term the children will be learning about sounds. The children discovered that sound is made by vibrations and vibrations travelling through the air. They learnt that larger objects vibrate slower and make lower-pitch sounds. In contrast to smaller objects vibrate faster making higher-pitch sounds.
The children learnt that sound must have a medium, such as air or water, in order to be heard. Following this, the children went to explore the sounds they could hear around school and what objects vibrated together to make the sound.
