Olympic Challenges – 4 x 100 metres

Yesterday afternoon all of most of Year 7 and all of Year 8 took part in one of my Olympic Challenges – the 4 x 100 Metre Relay.

The event worked as follows:

Each child wrote the first 100 words of a story and they had to include the following words run, fast, start, finish and race.

They then wrote the last 10 words that they had written onto a second sheet of paper and passed it on to a second child who wrote the next 100 words.

Process was repeated until the fourth child had written the final 100 words of the story.

Only a few managed to get to the full 400 words written as we had quite a few Did Not Finishes.

Here is the first example that I have posted on the Olympic Challenges blog.
