Science – Sound
Sounds are made when objects vibrate.
The vibration makes the air around the object vibrate and the air vibrations enter your ear – you hear them as sounds.
You cannot always see the vibrations, but if something is making a sound, some part of it is always vibrating.
Activity 1 – Fill in the missing gaps.
Activity 2 – Complete the Quiz.
Design and Technology
Motion is the process of moving or being moved and forces cause motion to change.
At its very simplest we can explain a force as a push or a pull and these forces often cause something to move – they cause motion.
