Year 4 Science of Sound
On Thursday 26th April, Year 4 visited the Symphony Hall. There, we learned all about sound, how it made and how it travels. Many amazing and interesting demonstrations were given to help us visualise sound. During the morning, an organist played different music and we also watched a very interesting film about the Symphony Hall organ and how it was made. It has 6000 different pipes of all shapes and sizes.
On 4th May, we were really lucky to have a visitor. Tom brought in different objects that people used to listen to music on, including a gramophone, a record player and even a phonograph. It was amazing to see and even listen to the old technology that people had in their homes. We are really lucky to have CDs now because they don’t get as damaged as old records used to.
Here are some of the images from our fantastic workshop on the science and history of sound.
