Scream Machine

Picture 1

Roll up, roll up! We’ve got an exciting workshop planned! 


This half term, we’ll write poems to capture the excitement of riding a roller coaster and investigate the wonders of centripetal force. After carrying out fair tests to investigate the materials used to make roller coasters, we’ll create prototype rides of our own. Let’s hope we choose the right materials! In our computing work, we’ll upload photographs of rides and examine online theme park maps. Then, we’ll use advanced techniques and commands to search for information on the internet. In English, we’ll write stories, signs and emails about theme parks and investigate forces by making a ride. We’ll design a roller coaster using software such as Scratch and look at online advertising. 
At the end of the project, we’ll use software to write computer programs, and deliver a presentation to advertise a ride. Finally, we’ll make some delicious fairground food for everyone to enjoy!
