The Fairground

Our topic started with a video message from a mysterious stranger.  It was the owner of a fairground asking us to consider the pros and cons of holding a fair in the school playground!


We had a big discussion about the rides and games we would expect to see at a fair.  We designed colourful posters using water colours and made our own skill games to test the steadiness of our hands.  These shakey-hand testers allowed us to use our knowledge of building circuits.


At the end of our topic, we visited a real-life fairground and even got to try some rides!  This inspired us to hold our own fair-themed open afternoon in the classroom, complete with minty mushy peas.  

In English, we wrote radio adverts for imaginary rides.  You can listen to them below.
