    trying to remember what we did last year for lea obs. it was outside and involved measuring.
    how about timing running, measuring jumping, measuring throwing. (label the events appropriately) use a frisby for a discus,
    do you teach pe, is there some equipment you could borrow?
    leading to calculating mean, median, mode, range.
    Ensure that they split the results boy and girl to get an easy to compare double set of data.
    grpah if you wish.
    clearly you will need to show what you will do in the follow up lesson as time will be against you.
    converting cm to m??
    have 3 goes, work out the average (mean) time or distance....

    Olympics ideas (but not necessarily outside lessons) here...
  4. I was just going to attach the files we used for our curriculum day based on the Olympics but just can't seem to find how that works on here (sure I've looked at other people's attachments before). It's not outdoors but the kids really enjoyed it. Will pm you.
  5. Sorry Rossmkps, now realise I can't attach to a pm (doh). Is there any other way to attach a personal file?

    If you are happy for everyone to see it you could upload it as a teaching resource. Then you could PM the link, or even post it here.
