    Welcome to Hands-On Education, your hub of information for primary school teachers and home educators! Today we're exploring the wonderful world of sound, a fascinating topic that children of all ages love to explore. In line with the national curriculum for England, our activities combine science and music, making learning fun and hands-on.

    To kick things off, we have the "How We Hear" activity, which allows children to understand the process of hearing sound. This activity is perfect for children in Key Stage 2 and involves creating a simple model of the ear using everyday materials such as paper cups, string, and beads. By the end of the activity, children will have an understanding of how sound travels through the ear and how the brain interprets it.

    Next up is the "Earmuff Investigation" activity. This activity is perfect for home educators who want to explore sound in a fun and interactive way. In this activity, children will investigate how earmuffs work to block out sound. They will learn about sound waves and how different materials can absorb or reflect them. This activity is perfect for children who love to experiment and explore the world around them.

    If you're looking for more resources, we have a range of free videos available on our website. These videos cover a range of topics from how sound is made to how it travels through different materials. They are perfect for both teachers and parents who are looking for engaging and informative resources to share with their children.

    In conclusion, investigating sound is a great topic for primary school children and home-educated families alike. By using hands-on learning and fun activities, children can develop a deep understanding of the science and music behind sound. With our free resources and engaging activities, you'll have everything you need to make learning about sound fun and informative.
