History

This week Year 4 will be learning about mummification and the afterlife. Research what the Ancient Egyptian believed happened after death. Create an information poster explaining the facts you have found and what the mummification process involves. Be creative! Use colours and pictures to make your poster exciting. Maybe even act it out.

Science

This half term Year 4 are learning about sound, how it is created, how it is changed and how people hear.

Visit the following websites to learn about pitch and volume.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zgffr82/articles/z3j3jty – pitch

Use recycling to create an instrument such as a drum or guitar.

How can you change the pitch and volume?

What did you have to do differently to make a louder noise? Hit it harder, blow it harder, pluck it more firmly?

Sound is a form of energy and if we put more energy into making the noise then the noise will be louder. The size of the object vibrating will also affect the volume (amplitude/volume) – a large drum will be louder than a small drum.

The size, length and tightness of the object that is vibrating will affect the pitch of the sound it produces.
