Learning to observe and measure

In Science today 2C predicted how far they thought they would be able to throw a beanbag in metres. We had some very confident suggestions to start with until we discussed how far they actually were and then they decided that 100 metres was perhaps a little ambitious!

We then measured out intervals of one metre on the playground and the children took turns to throw overarm. They measured their distance to the nearest half metre with the help of a friend. Jackson was brilliant at recording each result. The furthest throw was an enormous 14.5 metres. Well done Roman!
