Hi Just looking for inspiration really and any help at all would be greatly appreciated! Next half term we are doing a topic named Thrills and Spills to include Science - Forces, and DT - mechanisms. We were thinking along the lines of fairground rides but we need an exciting point to begin the topic . We can't go on a school trip and funds are limited so I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas of how we could grab the children's attention ( I know a topic on fairground rides should grab attention but we have quite hard to motivate year5/6's) Also I am a little worried about the mechanisms bit as I have never taught this before and it is not my strong point! Any help at all would be greatly, greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
