Year 3 Working as Scientists

Today, Year 3 tested another hypothesis: “can bigger children jump further than smaller children?”  We all measured our height and recorded it on a post-it note.  We then talked about how we could make sure the experiment was fair.  We decided to draw a line and all do a standing jump from the same line.  We then went outside and took it in turns to jump and measure how far the distance we landed was from our starting line.  We found that in each group children who were smaller managed to jump further than the taller ones, so again we proved the hypothesis wrong!
