Our new topic in Science is Sound. Today the children were lucky enough to go outside and record all the different sounds they could here on a sound walk.
The children recorded that they could hear; footsteps, cards,planes, wind, birds, people talking, car doors, wind swaying, people shouting, children playing, music, singing, motorbike, car starting, wind swooshing, trees rustling, bushes blowing, running and wasps.
We went and stood around the back of the outdoor classroom to listen for different sounds. It was interesting for some of the children because the sound of the traffic sounded as though it was coming from a different direction.
Why do you think the traffic sounded like it was coming from a different direction?
