Week commencing 1.3.2021

Extra activity - going on a bug hunt 


Week commencing 8.2.2021


This week we are looking at pitch (frequency).

Watch the video and work through the activity sheet. 

If you want to, have a go at the investigating pitch experiment. If you don't have milk bottles, you could fill up some glasses with different amounts of water and run a wet finger around the rim. 

Week commencing 1.2.2021


Volume - How does a sound get louder or quieter?

This week we will look at patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it.

Watch the video then have a go at the investigation. Don't worry if you don't have the equipment, just use what you can. 

Week commencing 25.1.2021


Don't worry if you don't have a drum for the experiment. Anything to make a loud noise will do, you could bang a saucepan with a wooden spoon, clap your hands nearby or shout really loudly!

Week commencing 18.1.2021 


This week in science we will be thinking more about science and how the sound moves from its source to your ears. We will think about our ears and make our own instrument. Follow the video then have a go at the 2 activities. 

You could use the book and elastic band like in the video or you could use the 'Making a string instrument' sheet to make your instrument.
