Rocking rockets

In science year 4 have been thinking about which materials to use to make an effective rocket. In pairs they made their rockets, carefully selecting different materials.

  
They then tested their rockets which involved connecting them to a hose and jumping hard on the bottle to launch their rockets. Each pair measured the distance their rocket travelled.

  
Year 4 will be comparing their findings to find out which rocket travelled the furthest. They will consider which materials were best and other factors that influenced how far the rockets travelled.
