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…

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.

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.…

Y6 Light Investigations

This week, Year 6 have been thinking of ways to show that light travels in straight lines. Last lesson we learnt about how our eyes see things. We observed what happens to our pupils when the light is switched on or off. Ask a Year 6 child why!
