Science-Today we are looking at sound!


Before we start, try to make 6 different noises using your mouth.

Can you do it easily?

Can you make any other noises using your body? 

No rude noises thank you! 


Sound is a form of energy. In most cases, the more energy that is put into making the noise will result in the noise being louder. The size of the object vibrating can also affect the volume.  


The loudness (or volume) of a sound is how loud or quiet the sound is. A drum hit hard makes a loud sound whereas the same drum hit gently will make make a quieter sound.

The size, length and tightness of the object that is vibrating will affect the pitch of the sound it produces. The pitch of a sound is how high or low the sound is. A high sound has a high pitch and a low sound has a low pitch. A tight drum skin gives a higher pitched sound than a loose drum skin. Can you think of any other examples?
