As part of our Science unit, we have been exploring how pitch can be changed in different instruments. We made our own pan pipes to investigate this. We found out that generally, the shorter, tighter, thinner the object is, the higher pitch the sound will be. This is because the vibrations will be faster. The longer, looser or thicker the object is, the lower the pitch of the sound will be. This is because vibrations will be slower.
We celebrated Kindness Week. We learnt about how important being kind is and the changes which take place in your brain when you are kind or someone is kind to you. Did you know that being kind boosts happiness, is contagious and can lower your blood pressure?
Over the week we took part in mindfulness activities, handed out Caught You Being Kind Cards, awarded Kindness Certificates, signed our anti-bullying charter and completed a Five Days Of Kindness activity where we recorded a kind act we did each day.
Year 4 have CHOSEN KINDNESS!
