Learning About Sound

This half term in Science we have been looking at sound. We have been carrying out a number of investigations to help us answer some of our questions: How is sound made? Can sound travel through different materials? How can distance affect sound?

Our first lesson focussed on discovering how sound is made. We discovered that sound is made through vibrations. We wanted to conduct an investigation which would allow us to ‘see’ sound vibrations. We discussed our ideas and decided to use drums and other resources (to represent sound) to watch the vibrations made when hitting the drum.
