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.
