The Book Bus visits Levens

The Book Bus visited us today and the younger pupils had a lovely time, hearing the librarian read us a story and we all choose a book to borrow. This is a fantastic way of sourcing new reading material for school and the selection of new books is second to none! Thank you to the wonderful Library Service for all you offer to us.

Are we faster than Usain Bolt?

In maths today we were learning about measuring in metres. We found out that the great Usain Bolt could run 100m in just under 10 seconds.

This was a challenge we couldn’t resist – we have been exploring how far we can run in 10 seconds. When we first tried it took us only 8 seconds to run all the way across the longest side of the playground – this was a problem! So we decided to measure how far we could run in 5 seconds and then double our measurements to tell us how far in we might be able to run in 10.

Here are the measurements for 5 seconds we recorded in the playground. Can you see any that are the same? Can you see any longer distances or shorter distances? Next, we will be doubling these to find out our distances.
