11C High and Low Pitches

In science, we explored what makes the sound high and low pitched sounds.

Our first experiment involved filling bottles with different amounts of water and then looking at the effects of the sounds made by banging or blowing in them.  Some of us were able to describe the difference in terms of sound waves and vibrations.

We then worked as a group and listened to the different sounds xylophones and boomwackers made…


We were able to link the size of the instrument to the type of pitch it made.

Until next time.

11C Pancakes

On Shrove Tuesday, we decide to go with the flow and make pancakes.

We practised our pancake flipping skills with card board pancakes…


As you could have guessed, it was a little chaotic…


We made the batter and ate them with various sweet toppings…


Everyone then had to clean their plates…


Until next time.

11C Colourful Parrots

In history, we have been learning about bird adaptations. We used the colourful inspiration from parrots’ feathers in our art lesson.

Until next time.

11C Sound

In science, we have explored how sound is a vibration. We experimented in different ways to see the effects of these invisible waves.

First, we made sound using different instruments to make small objects move…


We then made a string telephone that went from one end of the school to the other…

We could hear our conversations across the school.

Until next time.
