Fairground games at The Grange

In preparation for the arrival of this year’s Banbury fair, year 5 and 6 pupils from The Grange County Primary School, Banbury decided to make their own games for a selection of year 1 children.

The idea behind the games was to see how team work, effective communication, initiative and ‘taking a risk’ could be used to design an exciting and attractive game that young children would want to play.

All year 1 pupils had tickets which they could ‘spend’ on any of their favourite games after stall holders were given the opportunity to pitch their games.

Year 5 and 6 pupils were also allowed to introduce special offers such as buy one, get one free to entice punters to spend tickets on their games.

After an exciting and noisy 20 minutes of participation the tickets were counted and winners declared.

Year 1 pupils really enjoyed engaging with their older peers and found the fair a fun and exciting learning experience.

Year 5 and 6 pupils learnt lots of valuable lessons and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to put into practice the importance of team work and most importantly ‘taking a risk’ to achieve their goals.

Well done to all pupils who participated!
