Pearl class have been exploring sounds this week, as part of this term’s science topic: ‘Sound collectors’. We have been listening carefully to sounds all over our environment. We listened to the sounds of nature, people and even the different ways that water moves around.
We were introduced to a range of musical instruments, and we talked about how sounds are made from them.
We learnt how sounds can be changed. We discovered that some instruments can make high notes and low notes. We investigated how we can change sounds to make them louder, quieter, faster or slower. We did this by playing our instruments, singing and clapping in different ways. We took turns to decide how the class should play!
We also had a go at making our own instruments to help us with our learning.
In our maths lessons we have been learning to match number shapes, and have become familiar with using them in our play.
We enjoyed re-telling our key text, ‘So Much’, and we shared photos of our relations such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We also created babies and family members with playdough.
