Eagles had a fantastic time on Thursday working to design and create their own moving fairground rides. We used our computer programming skills to include working lights, motors and even some musical accompaniment! We’d like to say a big thank-you to STEM for organising the day and to FOGS for funding it.
We investigated what the term 'Fair Trade' might mean this week by playing a game. The children split into 'countries' and were allocated resources - some more than others. Each country tried to use their resources to make flowers to sell to Mrs Holt, a well known international flower trader. It was very interesting to hear words such as 'profit' and 'marketing strategy' being used completely off the cuff by Year 5 and 6 children! The children als learned about fluctauting market prices and supply and demand.
