This half term, class 8 children have completed an investigation titled ‘Which straw makes the rocket travel the furthest?’. As a class, we have discussed what an investigation is and used technical vocabulary such as ‘variables’. It was important that we understood what we were going to keep the same and what we were going to change in our investigation. Before we completed the investigation, we predicted the result. After, we went outside to launch our rockets! We found out that the longest straw sent the rocket the furthest. One group’s rocket flew 1.8 metres!
