Toucans experience silence

This afternoon, Year 2 have been listening to the world around them. First they had to sit in silence and listen to the noises in the classroom.

We could hear:
Scarlette -It was completely silent.
Nyeema– I could hear swallowing.
Kai – I could hear breathing.

Next, the children listened to noises on a PowerPoint and tried to identify them. They were all very good at listening and guessing the sounds. They found some of the sounds very funny especially the toilet flushing!!

Finally, they all sat outside to listen to the sounds. Was it silent? How did it make them feel to sit in silence?
