Can children with longer legs jump further?

Year 2 have been busy investigating the question: ‘Can children with longer legs jump further?’ We started off by getting into small groups and measuring how long our legs were.  We had lots of discussions about how to make our test fair before we went outside to measure how far we could jump.  Once we had carefully recorded our results we came back inside to analyse our results.  We found out that the length of someone’s legs does not affect how far they can jump!
