Sounds can be high pitched, low pitched, loud or, as in the picture, quiet.

Energy - Sound, Loudness and Pitch

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with energy, sounds, loudness and pitch.

You know a lot already about energy but did you know that sound is made by energy? You know how we hear sounds. Not all sounds are the same, of course. Some sounds are loud and some are soft. Sounds have different pitches. Some are high and some are low. Musical instruments can play different notes. Let’s find out a bit more about pitches, loudness and sounds.
