Calling all budding scientists!  This week’s home learning task is all about sound and involves you having a go at a sound experiment.  Have a look at the task sheet, choose an experiment (or do both) and then record your findings in an interesting way.

    Sonic Speed – Did you know that thunder and lightening happen at the same time, so why do we see the lightening first? Because the light travels to our eyes faster than the sound travels to our ears.

    Mr Cobb we did this experiment at home. We needed a kitchen roll tube, and two rulers. One person stood with their eyes closed with the tube held at one of their ears. The other person had the two rulers and tapped them together either on the right, left or behind the person with the tube. Which tapping was the loudest? We expected the tube to help us to hear the tapping but the loudest sound was when the tapping came from behind us. The tube didn’t help at all!
