Year 1MS - How long is 1 minute?

Today we learned that there are 60 seconds in one minute.
But how long is 60 seconds? What things can do you in 60 seconds?

The children were set a variety of tasks such as 'How many times can you write your name in 1 minute?' and 'How many star jumps can you do in minute?'

The children firstly estimated then completed each task.
They were surprised at how long some tasks took and how quick 1 minute seemed during other tasks.

 How many star jumps can you do in 1 minute?
  The looming 1 minute countdown... How many times can you write you name in 1 minute? How many squares can you draw in 1 minute?

Miss Shah joined in as well!

 How many times can you touch your head, shoulders, knees then toes in 1 minute?


  What is the biggest number you can write up to?
  How many laps can you do around the playground?
