Y5 Fairground Rides (July 2017)

"All the Fun of the Fair" arrived at Codnor Primary in July 2017 as Y5 children unveiled their Fairground Ride creations to the rest of the school and the admiring public!

 

Many hours of research, planning, creativity and construction went into the rides, and everyone was impressed with the children's creations! One parent said, "These rides get better every year!"

 

'Fairground Rides' is a super topic, as it combines design technology, computing, art, science, maths and English - and gives the children an opportunity to work together as a team.

 

We hope you enjoy the video below as much as we enjoyed making it!

(No pressure!) surprise
