Class 5 have settled in well and have been very busy learning about our fairgrounds topic. We have investigated the history and development of fairgrounds over the centuries. We know that Frederick Savage played a very important role in revolutionising the fairground as his was the first person to producing steam powered rides. The children have created PowerPoint presentations during ICT to show information about the life of Frederick Savage. The children were really enthusiastic about this work and put a great amount of effort into producing high quality work which contains animations, sounds and slide transitions.
We have also written letters to Miss Tapp to try and persuade her to build a fairground on our school field. The children used lots of persuasive features in their writing and focussed on the positive of having a fairground at our school. Despite our best efforts, Miss Tapp is still reluctant to have a fairground built!
