    The last few weeks in Year 3 we have been looking at how we express ourselves through sound. The year 3’s made their own instruments and presented their understanding of how sound works. They all spoke confidently about the materials used, the process that they went through and demonstrated the sound their instrument makes. They were great risk-takers and showed a good understanding of sound, its properties and how we use sound to communicate.
    Great creativity was displayed. Well done to all of Year 3!
