In line with our topic for this term, ‘Playlist’, the children learnt about different instrument families and the sounds they make. In Science, the children explored and investigated how vibrations lead to sounds. They learnt that the ear is made up of three different sections that work together to collect sounds and send them to the brain: the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. They tested certain instruments, and noticed that when any object vibrates, it causes movement in the air particles which cause them to bump into more air particles, which cause sound.
