Do Something Different! Children In Need

As part of the Children Need Activities on Friday, Mr Hughes' maths group did something different by using the Nintendo Wii and Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.

We have been working on data analysis and mean, mode, median and range in class recently. The game provided a unique way to gather some data to do our analysis. We played the game for about 20 min and everyone got to do the 100 meter sprint. We recorded this and then, used the data to find out the average speed of the class.

Here we are working below after our sprints. Our average time was 10.674 seconds.

Mario Kart Day 2

Today we continued to work with Mario Kart and started to develop our commentaries. We started by watching yesterdays race and warming up our skills. Then we watched a race that I (Mr Hughes) had done. We used this as our stimulus for our newspaper report. We watched the race 2 times, firstly to record words to describe the events of the race and secondary to record ideas about opinions and other details. The class interviewed Yoshi finally about his race to gather the last of the information they needed.

We share wrote a opening paragraph and then we started to write, we are going to continue on Thursday.

Could you use the video we watched to describe the race?
