Sound Science

During this half term the children in KS2 have been learning about sounds in science.  The highlight of the unit was learning about pitch when we invited a local brass band player into school.  During the afternoon we were given a demonstration of how the three instruments (a cornet, trombone and a tenor horn) sounded and how they each differed in pitch.  The children all enjoyed blowing the instruments and using the valves to change the pitch of the notes.  Great fun was had making a variety of sounds and learning about why the three instruments sounded different.  The afternoon culminated in a fun activity making straw oboes and seeing who could make the highest and lowest pitch.
