Perfect Pitch with Pan Pipes!

It is evident that we have super scientists amongst Herons!

This week Herons spent time exploring the world of pitch. Conducted some firsthand scientific research, observing and testing as we made high and low pitched sounds. We used straws to create simple pan pipes. We then played these pipes and, with our scientific minds ticking, attempted to observe which pipe made the highest and lowest pitched sound. We thought about why, linking these ideas to our previous learning.

It was great to see the children have so many different predictions to start with but once properly observed, we all came to the conclusion that the shorter the pip, the higher the pitch. Herons were able to use their connection finding skills to realise that this was due to the strength of the vibrations!
