Pupils from a number of primary schools in the Dereham area have come together to take part in a themed literacy and numeracy day.
Youngsters from Beeston, Garvestone, Beetley, Scarning, Yaxham and Toftwood Schools visited Northgate High school where they practiced their maths and English skills, by pretending to run a theme park.
Organised and run by Mrs Woods, Head of English and Miss Theobald, Lead Intervention for Maths, the teams of 3 were supported by a Year 7 buddy over the course of the day.
Pupils had the opportunity to plan their theme park, look at the building costs, maintenance and staffing, create a brochure for the park and work out entrance prices. At the end of the day, pupils presented their work to the rest of the group and were awarded with certificates and medals for their efforts.
