09 June 2021 | Active Schools Week, Maths

3rd class did some measuring for their jumping and throwing activities for day 2 of Active Schools' Week 2021.

3rd class learned that the Long-Jump world record for men is 8.95m They used a trundle wheel to measure this on the school yard and then stood in line along the 8.95m. 

They then had a "javelin"(bean-bag) throwing competition, which was won by Junior with a massive 20m throw - well done Junior!
