Science Week in Upper Foundation Monday
When we arrived in school on Monday there was a giants footprint and a letter from the giant! He wanted to know whether we thought our feet were as big as his and why/why not. Many of the children thought that he would have much bigger feet than us because the taller we were the bigger feet we have. We decided to undertake an investigation to find out.
After painting our feet, we made footprints and then measured them. We plotted the results on a scatter chart. We found out that in RG the taller children had much bigger feet but in RS lots of people had the same sized feet regardless of their height.
Upper Foundation staff were very impressed with the children’s ability to talk about a theory, an investigation and measuring fairly and accurately.
