Well done to the 3 children in Sparrowhawks who represented Gastrells at the Panathalon Challenge on Friday at Stratford Park.

Group 2 – centre, century, certain, recent, experience, sentence, notice, celebrate, ceremony, certificate
Today we took our maths lesson outside. We worked in groups to calculate the area and perimeter of the netball court, using meter sticks and trundle wheels. We then had to create our own quadrilateral with a certain area and mark this out with cones. After this Mr Muskett gave us the challenge of setting a course to run 1km, we decided on 25 laps (!!!) around a 10m x 10m square.
When we came back into the classroom we drew scale pictures of the netball court where 1cm equalled 1m. Some of us even tried to use compasses to draw the semi circles accurately.
