Sound around us!

Monday 14 May 2018

Our new topic, Sound, has kicked off with a sound survey walk around school this afternoon. We predicted that our Nursery area would be the noisiest and the field would be the quietest. But, after our sound walk we discovered that Nursery was one of the quietest areas in school!

We are learning that vibrations make sounds.


The children discussed the most important sounds that we hear and and prioritised them using a Diamond 9 grid.  Many children said that fire alarms and sirens were the most important sounds. Parent voices and teacher instructions were thankfully not too far down the list!
