Year 4

Due in on Tuesday 2nd April  2019

There is no homework this week other than your project and reading.


Science/DT Project

There will be no additional homework next week or over Easter.


This homework is due in on Wednesday 24th April 2019  

Using the internet, or, real musical instruments, research a selection of different musical instruments (woodwind, string, percussion).

Try to find out:

What materials are used to make the instrument?

What is the structure of the instrument?

Is it solid or hollow?

Does it have a box, arm, stem, board?

Identify the different parts, materials used and methods of assembly used in the instruments. Think back to our science lessons and look for features such as pitch and volume, and how we discovered these could be changed.


For homework we would like you to  use your understanding of sound to create a musical instrument using everyday materials.

You might want to choose to make:

  • A shaker (margarine pots with rice, gravel or sand)
  • A scraper (plastic bottles with ridges, dowel rods)
  • A drum (food containers, biscuit tins)
  • A string instrument (food container, elastic band, string)


Consider: the purpose, the sound you want your instrument to make and ensure it is of high quality.


Use the worksheet provided to help you plan and evaluate your product.

We look forward to seeing your creations!



There are no spellings for this week.



As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book.


Have a good weekend.
