Active School Week 2018: Walking with a smile 2nd class.

Yesterday morning we  had a lovely walk in our local park.  We counted our strides  for a full lap and found out there were about 700 strides altogether.  Some clever minds then remembered that on average a young persons stride is about half a metre in length. They then calculated that it must be about 350 m per lap ! Smart minds and healthy bodies in 2nd class!
