Time to get creative!

 

Explore making objects vibrate around your home.  You could try twanging a ruler, bobbles, guitar strings or rubber bands (these could be wrapped around a cup).  You could even try using your body!  Think back to when we made the sound of rain and thunder using body percussion.  Try to increase the vibration – does this influence the overall sound?  I would love to see pictures of you experimenting with different objects, or even creating music with your body.  Email me here and let me know if you agree or disagree with Davina: lilleshall.year4@taw.org.uk
