Lower KS2: Y3 (ST) Y3/4 (MC) Y4 (JJ) 2019 - 2020

Miss Townes

In LKS2 this half term our topic is ‘How do we hear?’

We are launching this topic with a ‘Kandinsky’ inspired day. We will listen to music and use this music to inspire art work. The children will be able to use a variety of media to create their art.

During this topic we will be continuing to carry out a number of science investigations. We will be investigating how sound is made and the different vibrations that are caused. Next, the children will learn how the ear works and we will look at the different parts of the ear. The children will then play with a number of musical instruments to see if they can alter the pitch from high to low and vice versa. We will make pan pipes that alter the pitch of the sound and we will also create string telephones and investigate how these work. The children will have great fun when we conduct our sound proofing experiment and use our data loggers to measure the sound that is / is not heard from inside the sound proofed boxes!

We will end this topic with a trip to Messuage Farm in Marton. On the day the children will work in teams to design and make a musical instrument using the outdoor and recycled materials that they gather. The children will have the opportunity to play these materials to their peers.

We will be covering strands from National Curriculum in Science and Design Technology through a cross curricula approach.  RE, Music, PE, French and Computing will be taught discretely.

Please see our curriculum map to see what we are studying in each area of the curriculum.
