Do the oldest children perform faster?

As part of our Science learning we have been finding out about the stages of human growth and thinking about what we can do now that we couldn't do when we were a baby.


During this weeks lesson we planned an investigation to answer the question 'Do the oldest children perform faster?'  We thought about how we could find the answer to this question and decided we should set up some tasks for some of the oldest and youngest children to complete.  We had great fun investigating as we were able to closely observe what was happening and take accurate measurements of time using stop watches.


We found out that the age of the children didn't matter as in some of the tasks the oldest performed faster and in others the youngest performed faster.
