Fun at Kelso races

Following an educational visit to Newham Hall Farm Rosie Barber, the farmer, invited us to Kelso Racecourse. We were there for the whole day and we had our own viewing box. We were taken to the weighing room and worked out the perimeter of the parade ring and other maths challenges including measuring the steeplechase jump. The most exciting part was seeing the horses in full gallop and running up the last furlong ourselves.
