In Science, as part of our Animals Including Human Unit, we have been investigating the question - If someone has a longer femur, they can jump further?
After we discussed a fair test and what needs to stay the same and what will change we measured all of the children’s femurs and then in groups we put the femurs in order, from the longest to the shortest.
Next, we lined up in our groups and went to the field. We each took turns to jump in the sandpit. Mrs Horslen measured the length of all of our jumps and we wrote it down in our books.
Then we compared the results with the length of femurs.
We found out that if you have a longer femur you do not necessarily jump further - very interesting!
