Class Connectivity

To keep our class connected and to see what we all have been doing during these unprecedented times, I would like you to send me either a picture or small video of something you have been up to. This could include a walk, exercise routines, painting, etc - anything you have been up to and want to share. I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of the week.

Topic 1: Designing a Theme Park Layout

 

A plot of land has become available and you have decided to build a brand new theme park. You have managed to secure a £500,000 loan from the bank.

 

Your first task is to plan your park. The piece of square paper (below), will be your park.  

 

You must carefully decide what kind of rides you are going to have. You also need to think about the other facilities visitors will need when they come to your theme park. For example, toilets, cafes, shops and paths will all be available for purchase. 

 

Setting up your theme park:

 

Your spending limit is £500,000. Design and draw your theme park on the squared paper. You must not go over your spending limit and you must have car parks, toilets, paths to connect all the items, cafes and shops for your visitors. It is not about just having rides. You will need to please all of your visitors. 

 

Each attraction comes under a different category. Each category varies in price. Choose carefully from the prices and information page, making sure you have something which appeals to everyone.

Example of Theme Park Plan

How to create the above plan:

1. Download the squared paper.

2. Take a screen shot of the whole document - Press 'Alt' and 'PrtSc' (Windows)

3. Copy and paste the squared-paper screenshot into paint - will make colouring in the plan easier.

4. Fill in squares quickly using the paint bucket icon on paint.

5. Crop your finished plan.
