Do our bones affect what we can do?

This week in Science, we have been investigating whether people with longer legs jump further and people with longer arms throw further.

We measured each person's femur and two forearms bones  (the ulna and the radius). We then threw the bean bag and jumped. Using the skill of measuring accurately, we discovered that the length of the bones is not always relevant in how far people jump or throw. It is the technique and the skills of how well we perform.

Next, we will write up our conclusion in a letter to Mrs Williams, the PE teacher.
