Today the whole of 6M went out on the yard. We laid out tape measures up to ten meters long and ran up and down six times and in the quickest time we could. We were all in groups of five or six, one of us controlled the Ipad with the stopwatch and another with pencil and paper writing down our times. After, we had to go around the track in a specific time like thirty seconds around the track once. We all had a really good time and would love to have another go soon!
Here are some of the numeracy skills we used in Athletics today:-
Timing to the nearest tenth of a second
Measuring to the nearest metre
Finding the mean (average)
Estimating how long it takes to run round the track. Sir asked us to run around it in 20 seconds, 30 seconds and one minute. We had to judge our pace and it was quite hard.
