Y2 Describing Sounds

Pupils look at a range of instruments placed on a resource table. Each instrument should have a label on it naming it. Pupils explore these instruments one at a time to find out what sounds they can make with them. They record their investigation in a booklet.

  • PoS - observe and name a variety of sources of sound, noticing that we hear with our ears
  • NaG - pupils should explore various ways of making sounds, for example using a range of musical instruments to make louder and softer and higher and lower sounds
