P5 have begun their project on Rollercoaster Tycoon. They are using the management simulation to design and run an amusement park.
The parks have been constructed really quickly and guests have flocked to them. Problems have arisen with questions over construction and the hiring of staff, but in the most part there have been no disasters. One student managed to lose around 50 guests whilst another cruelly sacked a handy man after less than a day's work!!
Work has been planned in Literacy to run alongside the project covering aspects such as persuasive writing and information texts. Students have responded very positively to the project, often returning to the ICT room in their own time to continue building their parks.
