Scientific Enquiry in Year 6

O’Keeffe Class (Year 6) began their year by delving into the investigative world of science. Predictions were made about whether the length of your legs affects the distances you are able to jump.  We tested our predictions by measuring the leg length of each team member.  Then, we measured the distance of each person’s jump forward using a tape measure.  In order to ensure a fair test, we took three readings of each jump and calculated the average jump length per person.  Some of our results were surprising – what do you think happened?
