Five lesson starters provide an engaging access point to the subject of sound and hearing across KS1 and KS2. At the end of each clip a question is posed. Clip 1 is a comedy about a man whose noisy neighbours keep him awake and asks the question: What materials are best to muffle sound? Clip 2 is a Sound Quiz. An elaborate montage of pictures and sounds are followed by a quiz where ten sounds are played back without any pictures. How many sounds can you recognise? Clip 3 is a little drama about a game of hide and seek in a wood. Gabby has trouble finding her friend until she realises that taking off her ear muffs help her pinpoint where he's hiding.

Catherine the Great by Paul Burgess( visu )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 625 libraries worldwide
A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars--each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct--with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot
