Pupils make improvements to a science investigation

Year 5 and 6 pupils were encouraged to reflect on their learning and evaluate and modify a dissolving sugar cube investigation. The pupils had planned to time how long it took for the water to reach the top of the tower, but here the pupil has explained that “the base of the sugar cube tower was collapsing before we were able to measure the height that the water had travelled” therefore they changed their investigation to record “how long it would take the base of a sugar cube tower to dissolve and the tower to collapse.”
