Science Lesson 2


Key Vocabulary: Sound, source, vibrate, vibration,

Last week we began by thinking about different sound sources Sound - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize (Click the link)

Sound is made when a sound source vibrates.’

  • Can you quickly name 5 sound sources? E.g. teacher talking, foot stamping,
  • What is vibrating to make the sound? E.g. vocal chords, wooden floor,



Today we are learning about


How sound travels from the sound source to our ears?


To aid our understanding it helps us if we first consider what is between the drum and the ear.

Deep thinking - Is this bottle empty?




This bottle may appear empty but it is full of air!

Air is a gas. We cannot see the air in the bottle, or around us, but it is full of tiny particles. Tiny particles of gas, that are so small we cannot see them. Liquids, such as water, and solids are made up from particles too.



The particles in solids are close together, in liquids they are slightly further apart and in gases the particles have much more space between them. We are going to learn much more about this next term.


The drum is surrounded by air particles. When you bang a drum its skin vibrates. The harder you bang, the bigger the vibrations. The vibrating drum skin causes nearby air particles to vibrate, which in turn causes other nearby air particles to vibrate. These vibrating particles make up a sound wave.

The sound wave is not like a wave in the sea. It’s a longitudinal wave – like you see in a slinky.


Watch this video to help our understanding.



How does sound travel through air?

How does sound travel through air? - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize


The sound travels across the particles as a wave. The sound wave travels from the sound source, vibrating air particles which travel and bang into neighbouring air particles until the sound wave reaches our ears.



Deep thinking - If the air particle were removed, creating a vacuum, what do you predict will happen?


Let’s watch the video to find out!

Why can't we hear it? - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize






Can sound travel through liquids?

To be able to use evidence to support ideas.




Make a hydrophone.



Draw and label a diagram to show how sound travels from the sound source (e.g. spoons banging) through liquid (water) to the ear.

Write a sentence explaining your evidence/proof that sound can travel through a liquid.



Please take a photo of your work and email it to Mr Annakie who will forward it to me. It’s important I keep a record of all your hard work as it helps me to know how you are getting on.
