Comparative and Fair Testing

The children in Year 3 and 4 asked their own questions about how sounds can be changes and found different ways to answer our questions. 


Comparative fair tests: children have set up simple practical tests to explore sound and how sound travels. 


Firstly exploring everyday sounds around school and finding the source of the sound lead them to think about how the sound spreads, an investigation into sound ways led them to find the source of sound waves. 


Impact: children have been able to raise their own relevant questions about the world around them. 


Progression: Children will be able to use their science experiences to explore ideas and raise different kinds of questions.
