Year 4 String telephones

As part of the Science topic on sound the Year 4 boys made their own telephones using paper cups and string. The boys learnt that the string needed to be taut for them to hear each other. The network of telephones made the sound quieter.

Running Club

Running club has been a real success in the three years it has been running. with up to 20 boys regularly running our 3km course along the banks of the River Thames. I will shortly be creating some Strava links for those of you who wish to challenge yourselves against our boys, or just see where they run.

The boys strive to set new Personal Bests and even to beat the course record. last years record held by Theo Williams, an impressive 13.06, has already been beaten 3 times this year with Tristan Brown setting a staggering course record of 12.20.

Equally impressively is that almost every single pupils has set a new personal best.

We finished last term with the annual Christmas run and this year it was bigger than ever, we had pupils from year 3 join us and even some reception girls. there was strong cluster of mums enjoying some early morning exercise too. many thanks to the parents who sent in their photos to be used in this blog.

Many thanks to Adam Buckingham, Charlotte Oakley and Matt Oakley who are regular runners and without whom there would be no running club. many thanks to the boys because seeing the effort they put in and the progress that they make really starts Tuesdays on a positive note.

as promised here are the Stava links to our segments

The first 1.5km

The Return 1.5km
