Doncaster Racecourse

On Friday the 27th April 35 pupils along with Miss Amies, Mr Bailey and myself went along to Doncaster Racecourse for a day of Maths.
 
Upon our arrival we were met by an ex-jockey who lead us to a private box that had been very kindly reserved for us. During the day we had plenty of opportunities to discover what actually goes on at a racecourse working in the weighing room, parade ring, starting blocks and stables. Everybody got the chance to get involved in routines which regularly take place within their organisation.
