Yr 7 Science fresh from their ‘marble run’ then went outside…
Amy reports – We had a lovely time today, finding out our own speed by going outside and timing each other running a measured distance. 

We took clipboards, a timer and a trundle wheel. Times were recorded, we raced against each other, and calculated each others speeds.
 
Back to the classroom and compared our speeds to the speeds of different animals.
 
We summarised their findings, by looking at whether they could survive against safari animals or other animals of varying speed.
