Y5 Investigate

Y5 have been working scientifically today: learning about the importance of repeating measurements. We investigated ‘Does weight affect the height jumped by the springy toy?’ We made the toy heavier by adding equal blobs of blue-tac and recorded how high the toy jumped. The children soon realised that they were unlikely to be totally accurate and it was essential to repeat each measurement three times and then find an average. Great work by all- we even managed a graph as well!
