Speed of Marbles

Posted in Science

The experiment today, was to design a way to slow a marble down as it rolled down a table. The pupils weren’t allowed to touch the marble once they had let it go. They tried different ways to slow the marbles down including friction, increasing the distance and losing energy with impacts on surfaces and speed bumps.

Music, sound and hearing

Posted in Music, Science

We looked at how different musical instruments make sounds. We also looked at how sound is a vibration and how the vibration travels into your ear and how your brain receives the information about that vibration.

In the second lesson we investigated which ,materials were the best for making ear protectors. Three of the boys invented stick on your ear, static ear protectors!
