Speed Distance and Time

Today in maths we were learning about speed, distance and time. We measured our track to find our distance ofÂ  90 metres. We then recorded 3 attemptsÂ  and worked out our average time. Finally we used this to work out our speed using the formula S=D/T.

Sumdog

Congratulations P6a! You finished this week in 8th place overall, out of 111 East Renfrewshire classes that competed and qualified to enterÂ . Your average score was 850! Wonderful work!

Abby’s final position was actually joint 7th place with three pupils from other schools, with 985/1000. Great work, Abby! Tom was joint 14th in the authority and Cameron was joint 42nd with 981 and 954, respectively. As you can see the competition was stiff! There were 2739 pupils competing so this is quite an achievement!

Next timeÂ we compete itÂ will be aÂ national contest with 1450 classes currently entered. As always there are 1000 questions, aimed at your level, and accuracy is key. If we all answer our 1000 questions we can climb even further up the table as the score is a class average for correctÂ calculations, no matter how many you answerred. Last year Mrs Horne and Mrs Jamieson’s class won access to all areas of sumdog, not only maths, which was an exciting tool for their class to use while learning in P7.

Mark theÂ 3rdÂ – 9th of MayÂ in your diaries!
