Panflutes!

It's been another creative (and noisy!) day in Year 4. We have been busy making panflutes from plastic barrier pipes. We've had to use maths skills for measuring and DT skills for sawing. Not only that, but we've had to combine it with our knowledge of sound and what we discovered about pitch from…

Adding Fractions

We spent time creating fractions to solve our investigation, we used these fractions to make different mixed numbers. We had to think about how to add mixed numbers which really challenged us.

Pipes for different pitches.

After we had learnt what types of instruments produced different pitches, we created our own pipes using straws. We had to cut them different lengths to ensure the pitch was different to our partners.

Iroquois Tribe

We had a great afternoon learning all about the Iroquois Tribe as part of our Road Trip USA topic. We spent time listening to some traditional Native American music. We thought about the meanings behind them, what we liked and what we didn't like. We also compared it to modern music today. We then…

Investigating Pitch

We're having so much fun discovering how the pitch of sound changes. We discovered that a high pitch (squeaky like a mouse)  is normally made when an instrument is smaller, shorter or thinner. If the instrument is bigger, longer or thicker it normally has a low (rumble like a lorry) pitch. 

We…

Food Chains

In Year 4 we have created some fantastic food chains. We had to think about the meanings of the word predator, prey, consumer, scavenger and producer. We thought of examples for each of these in groups. Once done, we looked at food chains and how they show the transfer of energy from food to food.…

Egg experiment results are in!!

Year 4 were very surprised to learn that the squash damaged the eggs the most not the coke! The shell of the squash egg completely decayed and broke away, leaving a black stained and squishy egg behind. The coke and apple juice stained our teeth a lot too. The best liquid for the egg was water…
