Autmnn Term- Topic 4

Our current topic is...

Sound

 

Our focus for the next three weeks is on Science. We will begin our topic with a trip to the Manchester Science and Industry Museum for an exhbition on sound and music. The goal of our topic is to understand how we hear sound. We will be exploring this topic with lots of practical lessons and investigations. 

As scientists we will be looking at:

  • identifying how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
  • recognising that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
  • finding patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • finding patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it
  • recognising that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.
