Creating Pitch

In our Science topic - Sound, we have been learning about pitch.
Higher pitch is caused when sound waves move through the air causing FAST vibrations.
Low pitch is caused when sound waves create SLOWER vibrations.

We experimented creating different pitch - using various objects. eg; we filled jars of water and hit them with a spoon to create lower, higher and highest pitch.

We used cardboard boxes and rubber bands at different tensions to create different pitch. And we hung up tins and filled them with water. Did you know ... the more water you put in a tin - the LOWER the pitch! Most of us predicted it would make a higher pitch!

We even created the song 'Mary Had A Little Lamb" - this was very challenging, but some of us did it!

We also made plastic cup telephones. We discovered, if you attach two plastic cup together with string, and pull the string tight ... the vibrations of our voice travel through the sting, right to the ear of our buddy! We even heard our buddy WHISPER to us from about 10 metres away! It really works ... you have to try it!!!

Maths Week Fun

It's the second day of Maths Week!  Yesterday Mrs Bowles taught us. We had a fun Maths Trail with rooms 4, 5 and 6. We had to hunt for clues around the school to answer all sorts of maths questions.

Today was all about discovering and exploring tessellating shapes. We split up into 3 groups. First we made cool tessellating shapes using equipment. We mixed a variety of shapes to create unique patterns. Then we went on a hunt around school looking for tessellating shapes, which we drew pictures of. Our last activity was to go onto the maths website 'nrich maths'. We practiced making tessellations with a variety of shapes. When we make something amazing, we can print our pictures.

Check out the nrich maths website. The two activities we did today were ..
Tan's World - making animal, rocket shapes
Tessellation interactive
