We had a great day today, going to the beach and exploring different sounds. We’re quite lucky that our equipment didn’t break because it was so rainy out on the beach: oh well, that’s Scottish weather! Because the beach is quite far away (about a mile) we are all quite exhausted this afternoon. We walked there and back.
Here are a couple of photos from the beach (there’ll be more in a few days – keep checking…)
We recorded the sounds of the waves lapping: when we listened back, it made us feel quite sleepy.
When we came back from the beach, we visited the station and listened to a train go by. The train went really fast. It took us a while to wait for the train to pass…as we were walking to the station, one went by…but we managed to record the next train! We had someone on watch at the top of the railway bridge to shout when the train was appearing.
Here’s a photo of the whole class, just before we walked to the train station:
