Task: Kinetic Energy - Use two balls to transfer kinetic energy from the big ball to the smaller one and see what happens.

Link:https://www.sciencekids.co.nz/experiments/bouncingballs.html

Task: Measuring your heart rate after running - How do you feel after you have gone for a run or played your favourite sport? Tired right? This is because we need more energy,  for example to run, the heart beats faster to pump more oxygen around the body. When your heart beats it sends a wave of pressure through all of your veins in your body. We call this your pulse. In this activity you will measure your own pulse and compare it to after running or playing your favourite sport.

  • What did you find out?
  • What happened to your pulse rate after activity?
  • Why do you think this happens?

“All About Me” We would like to gather some information about you including your name, birthday, family information, favourite things and things you enjoy doing. This passport can be completed with other household members and try to think about your likes, favourite activities and things you are proud of… perhaps it is a sporting achievement?

If you have a passport from another country and wish to use a different template, please do! Twinkl has loads of templates, or you could even make your own.
