Topic - Science

WALA our sense of hearing

1. We are starting a new block of work in science, finding out about our senses.

The first sense we will find out about is hearing. Do you know what part of our body we hear with? Can you point to it?

2. Watch this clip on Espresso


Try to watch both parts.

3. Now, if possible, go outside for a walk or into your garden. What can you hear? There is a sheet you can write on in the resources section if you would like to use it. Try to sort the sounds into loud and quiet when you come back inside.

4. As an extension of your science skills I’d like you to try a science test.

Ask your parents for a wooden spoon and a metal pan. Ask your adult to bang the spoon in the pan while you are standing near it. Now take 5 steps backwards and ask them to bang the pan and spoon again. Keep taking 5 steps and repeat hitting the spoon on the pan. What do you notice about the sound, the further away you get? Does it get louder or quieter? Why do you think this might be?
