Glorious Glockenspiels

Year 4&5 learned about Sound during one of their recent Science topics.  They studied the inner workings of the ear and how sound vibrations are transmitted from the point of origin to the brain. The children found out about different ways to describe sounds and how to make sounds by causing vibrations in different ways. Impressively, the class learned how to map and read sound waves which showed combinations of high-pitched, low-pitched, loud and soft sounds.  To round off the topic, the children worked in pairs to learn how to play the melody of ‘Hot Cross Buns’ on the Glockenspiel – this is a tune which has a variety of high, low and mid-range pitches.  Well done, everyone!
