Autumn 1 2019
In response to a letter from the Game Zone Toy Company, 3/4 will explore ways to create a new range of magnetic games. They will write formal letters to the Toy Company accepting the challenge. Also, throughout the topic, the children will expand their knowledge of forces and magnets to research the best materials for their games. To create the “perfect” magnetic game the children will research existing games and conduct surveys. When planning their design, they will have to take into consideration the durability and appearance of the game. The success of the game will also depend on the quality of the written instructions which accompany it. The Chairman of the toy company will choose the three best games and another class will get an opportunity to play them all at a Games Convention.
Hook: The children received a letter from the 'Game Zone Toy Company' asking the children to design new board games because they feel theirs are outdated and their customers do not feel that they are fun and exciting to play.
