4th Class ASF committee members used a pedometer to measure 1 lap of our school pitch. They found that 1 lap=200m. We created a timetable and every Tuesday each class gets 10 mins to run as many laps as they can. We are having great fun calculating how many m/km we ran individually, as a class and as a whole school! We try to run a little bit further every Tuesday.
As a whole school, we ran 480.35km! From Blackrock, Co Louth to Leicester, England!
We ran 483.15km! Now we’re in Vernon, France!
Total of 479.85 km this week. We’ve reached Belfort, France!
