Grade 5 have recently begun their new unit- Switched on. As part of the unit, students are investigating the role of electricity and forces in the design and creation of fairground rides.
To fully experience the thrill of a fairground, without having to travel to one, the students used VR headsets to ride on a variety of different rides, from rollercoasters, to ferris wheels, to pirate ships to name just a few.
They will next choose a ride which they will design and create in class in small groups.
