The Science, Design and Technology of Music

The Science, Design and Technology of Music

Children in Year 4 have been looking at the topic of sound this term.  For homework, the children created musical instruments from recycled materials enabling them to explore sound in a different context.  They were able to identify which part of the instrument vibrates to create a sound and reflected on what modifications they could make to improve their designs.

The children came up with some fabulous creations and formed ‘The Junkyard Orchestra’.  They have enjoyed a couple of jamming sessions with all the different instruments which was great fun. Sherfield is developing a Science Technology Engineering Arts & Mathematics (STEAM) approach to learning of which this project is a great example.
