Investigating salt and sugar

Year 4 have continued their science learning and have been investigating the solubility of salt and sugar.

The children worked in pairs to put salt and sugar into cold water and see which dissolved the quickest.

The children ended up having a real mixture of results therefore we discussed the reliability of the experiment. The children discussed how it wasn’t really a fair test because you could have accidentally put more sugar in the water than salt.

Year 4 have learnt that science doesn’t always go to plan but that’s part of the fun!
