Science in music

Year 4 were very lucky to have been visited by students from the Hull University Music department.  In collaboration with the Hull Music Hub, they delivered a workshop to our the children about sound and music. It was a fabulous end to their science topic about sound, and an excellent opportunity to use their knowledge to discover and investigate how science can be applied to real life, everyday things. The children were able to apply their understanding of sound to work out how each of the instruments worked and why they were making the different pitches. It was also an incredible opportunity for the children to see some real live musicians up close and have a play with the instruments.
