Here you will find all of the planning and associated worksheets for the Year 4 topic on Sound.
It covers many of the all of the different types of working scientifically:
Playing with resources to discover how they move, what they do in an ‘unguided’ way.
-Observation over Time
Make careful observations of objects or events, or making a series of observations over time.
Observing and recording natural phenomena, or carrying out surveys, where variables cannot readily be controlled and then identifying patterns in their results.
-Identifying, classifying and grouping
Either arranging a range of objects or events into manageable sets by using observable features or, recognising objects and events as members of particular sets and allocating names to them.
Changing one variable and measuring or observing what happens, whilst keeping all the other variables the same.
Using research to help answer questions.
And the planning ensures all of the aims from the new curriculum are covered:
-identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
- recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
- find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
- find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it
- recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.
Any pictures that have been used in the making of these resources have been found on clipart and the worksheets are of my own making. You have everything you need to teach sound to Year 4. The presentation (as they have pictures found from Google and use the Twinkl background) are freely available if you look at the rest of my resources.
