My High Light This Year

The best thing this year was athletics. I really liked the high jump. In the year 8s Jabez came first. My highlight this year was cross country I came 24. Next year I need to work on my attitude towards other people.

Jab The Mascot.

This is Jab. Jab got his name from the boxing move. He is the mascot of the Glasgow Commonwealth games. Jab is wearing blue and white. This represents the colours on the Scottish flag. His skin is green because his older brother is the loch ness monster. He is dressed in a boxing uniform because he likes boxing but he is pretty average at it. Instead, he supports other athletes to do well. Jab also has the important job of hyping up the crowd.

What is echolocation?
To my understanding “Echolocation” is the use of sound waves to tell the distance between human and animals and any objects. Echolocation is mainly used by blind animals or human in many different ways. They can use echolocation to find their needs, for example food and water or to get away from dangerous objects or enemies.

It is a very big challenge to use echolocation but blind people have learned to trust themselves. Blind people and animal can use their senses to see instead.

Sounds waves are passed from air to liquid in the inner air. The inner air also contains tiny hair cells which react to sound waves, triggering chemicals that are sent to the brain as nerve impulses

Like many terms in science sound has different meanings. Everyday we hear sounds all around us. We use our ears to hear those sounds. These sounds can be loud or soft, high or low, and pleasant or unpleasant. The scientific meaning of sound is about understanding matter and energy. Our brains hear sound because energy moves the molecules to create sound. Vibrations move the molecules that create sound waves.
