In computing this week, we have used our music knowledge to make digital music.
We used Chrome Music Lab to explore pulse and rhythm using the rhythm app. We know the pulse was the heart beat of the music.
Then we used Kandinsky to explore how music can create images and images can create music. First we listened to Neptune by Holst and created our own images and then explore how painting on the Kandinsky app created sounds. We found we could change the pitch by placing the picture higher or lower.
Finally, we explored the tempo in the music maker. We created repeating patterns using only one note and then varied the tempo to change how the fast or slow the music played.
In Science, we have been growing plants. We wanted to find out what happens when a plant is given everything it needs- water, sunlight, air, soil. We planted our bean seeds and once they had germinated measured the growth every three days. We were amazed our beans grew from 2cm to 15cm in just 3 days!
In R.E. we have been finding out how Muslims prepare for prayer. We learnt about the steps of wudu and created a simple leaflet to teach others. We also began to designed our own prayer mats trying to create symmetrical designs.
Have a lovely holiday everyone from all in Class 2.
