Y4 Loud Sounds

Pupils look at a selection of pictures of everyday things that make sounds. They have to discuss which of the sounds they think can be heard from long distances? They cut out the pictures and place them in order, loudest sound to quietest. They compare their order with the other children in the class and discuss whose order they think is correct and why?

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear; recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases
  • NaG - pupils should explore and identify the way sound is made through vibration
  • WS - making systematic and careful observations
