Fairground Fun in Year 6

28 October 2015

On Tuesday morning, children in Year 6 came to school prepared with water bottles, trainers, sun cream, (and sick bags!!) for an exciting day at Dam Sen Park for the Entry Point to our new IPC topic, ‘Fairgrounds’.

As part of the IPC unit this term, Year 6 will be designing, creating and selling their very own fairground ride. This visit allowed them to gain some hands on experience of what makes an exciting ride, as well as taking the opportunity to look at the mechanisms and marketing for these rides (whilst having lots of fun!)

Throughout the day we rode on roller coasters, the mono rail, spinning space ships, hot air balloon rides and Mr James’ favourite… the bumper cars. Other rides that we saw included the Viking Ship, Ferris Wheel, Merry Go Round and we even saw a ride under construction.

Despite a few pale, dizzy and queasy looking faces, there was thankfully no vomiting and we then made our way to the special Halloween treat… the Haunted House!

With all of the excitement, soon the cogs started turning and ideas for their own rides started flowing in the children’s minds, as they began to discuss the practicalities involved in creating their own ride.

We look forward to seeing the results inspired by this fun-filled trip!
