Can you move this fish across the carpet without touching it? Let's have a race...
Fill a glass or some empty glass bottles with water halfway to the top. Now tap the side of the glass with a teaspoon. Can you describe the sound that you hear?
Let's explore how air moves by playing a fun game!
Close your eyes. Your mum or dad have made a strange object for you... can you guess what it is? Open your eyes and investigate!
Here's a tasty science experiment for you, investigating solids and liquids!
This quiz covers all the topics you have learnt in Y2 science. Can you answer all the questions?
What causes a rainbow to appear in the sky. Why are there colours in soap bubbles? If you put a stick, spoon or toy in water, why does it appears bent. Let's find out!
Have a look at the dates in this table. Which season are each of these dates in? Can you count how many hours of daylight are in each day?
We see an object because light shines onto it and is reflected back into our eye. When it gets dark this evening, try this activity to prove the theory.
Time for an experiment! Let's find out how the distance of an object from a light source changes the shadow it makes.
Try this experiment to see if light can go around corners!
For this investigation you will need to ask a parent or adult if you can borrow some glass bottles (milk bottles are ideal). Remember to be careful when handling glass and ask an adult to help you clean the bottles first.
When the roads are slippery in winter we spread grit and then salt on them. But is salt the most effective solid we could use? Conduct this simple experiment to investigate!
Look at these pictures. Which items do you think use energy? Which ones make energy? How do you know this? What sort of energy is made? Do they all make/use the same type of energy? Cut them out and sort them into groups.
In this investigation you are going to see if water can move – or does it just change?
Wind is moving air and we can use the energy in wind to do work. Look at these pictures to see how people have always used wind power to help them. How does the wind make these things work? Put the wind to work for you! Make your own pinwheel and watch it spin in the wind.
Look at these pictures. Can you identify what each item is? Which ones generate heat? Which ones don’t? Can you cut them out and sort them into two groups?
Pushing and pulling FORCES make things speed up or slow down or change direction or shape. A change in speed, direction or shape always has a CAUSE. Sort the following pictures into forces caused by pushes and forces called by pulls. Then think of your own examples of pushes and pulls as you do things throughout the day.
Evaporation is the process by which a liquid such as water turns into a gas. In this simple experiment you will investigate how this process takes place.
Look at these pictures of different musical instruments. Which part is vibrating to make the sounds we hear – is it the skin, strings, metal, wood or air inside the instrument? Record which you think it is below each picture.
