Q: Are dogs allowed?

A: Yes they are, but one dog per runner and on a short lead.

Q: Do you need a barcode or anything special?

A: You do need a barcode, but they can be easily be printed.

Q: I’m not a runner, but I am under 14. Are there any other events on?

A: There is a children’s parkrun on Sundays at 09:00. This run is shorter and more sutiable for children.

So, how about trying parkrun on Saturday? A whole world of fun and friends await you!

Ratio and Proportion

Posted in Design Technology, History, Maths

We made scale models in groups of the Parthenon. We researched the original measurements and using what we know in maths about ration and proportion built scale models.  We wrote our own blog posts about the process of designing, making and calculating and how we overcame any problems.

Devon Winter Games hockey final

Posted in Inspiration, Sport

We travelled to Torbay to take part in the Devon Winter Games. The opening ceremony had Matti Hemmings, a pro BMXer-his tricks were amazing!

 

We played some fantastic hockey matches, winning four, drawing one and losing one. We missed out on getting in to the semi-finals by a few points. It was a fantastic day-find out more by reading our comments.

Go Goodleigh!

Here are some photographs taken by a professional photographer on the day:
