    • Hi class6.parlewispri,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :)

      , Jan 4th
  • My kids love these projects!!  More please!!  But on this one I was wondering if you could put an editable (word doc) of the first draft map and activities sheet please - as in NZ we use dollars and I want to be able to change the pound sign to a dollar sign (I can do this with the powerpoints and the budget sheet but not this particular one (I had to handwrite it on and it looked ugly lol).  Are you able to send me an email of the doc so I can change it and use it pretty please.

    • Hi krissy4426,
      Thanks for your lovely request - I'll ask our design team to take a look and see if we can make this change for you :)

      , Sep 13th
    • Hi there krissy4426,
      Our lovely resource creation team have completed this and emailed the new resource to you, I hope you find it useful! It will also be available for download within 48 hours, and you can find it either as a new resource, or under 'Alternative versions' above.

  • Lesson 6 Slide 10 - the idea of a tragic accident benefitting the children's theme park seems rather inappropriate and, I feel, quite insensitive as there could be children who have been affected by something similar (if perhaps not at a theme park but another accident). I strongly feel that this should be changed. Could it maybe be 'During month 7, there is extremely bad weather at another national theme park. This has a tremendous impact on your sales' ? Please let me know!

    • Hi stjs017,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) I agree, and we'll get this altered right away.

      , Jun 29th
    • Hi there stjs017,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this issue! Our lovely resource creation team have amended the resource and the new version is now available to download.

    • Thank you for sorting this, this is much more appropriate and less morbid - I really appreciate it. However, the corrected text is the wrong colour and the sentence ends with ' instead of a full stop. Could these be changed?

      , Jun 30th
    • Also the same slide says that the month 7 profits drop as a result of the ride breaking down at another theme park. Given the context, surely they increase?

      , Jun 30th
    • Hi stjs017,
      Thanks for spotting this! We'll let our design team know right away!

      , Jun 30th
    • Hi stjs017,
      I'll let our design team know about this right away too and they will get it fixed as soon as they can!

  • I can't access the lesson plans - could they be put into pdf format?

    , Jun 26th
    • Hi there,
      This pack contains a 'Project Overview' PDF file with a plan for each lesson. I hope you find it useful!

  • Just starting with my Year 6 and they a loving it!

    , Jun 21st
    • I completed this project with my Year 6 class after SATs. It was great as they didn't see it as Maths or English. They loved it but asked if we could do research by going to a Theme Park. I wish!

      , Jun 24th
  • This is a fab resource, which I will be using with my class next week. However I have noticed some spelling errors on lesson 5 resources it says Id instead of If  I have tried to edit the resource but its made in such a way that I cannot edit it.

  •  Amazing resource. I will be using this next week. Thanks!

    , Jun 7th
  • As two teachers who like to find investigations, we found this last year. This is our second year using it and it is brilliant. Kids love it!

    , Jun 6th
  • The children have thoroughly enjoyed doing this project! Great powerpoints to go with each lesson and resources. Thank you

    • Hi vickybrownhill,
      Thanks for letting us know. I'm glad we could help!

  • While most of Y6 are away on Residential we have 10 students who are left behind. They will complete this project each morning with a cover supervisor and then have a few fun afternoons using D&T and Art to create their own Park! Learning and Lots of Fun while their peers are away! 

    , May 26th
  • Brilliant. I would love more Maths themed projects!

    , May 18th
  • great resource for Y6 - thanks twinkle

    • Hi bubbles246,
      You're very welcome and I'm so glad that we could help! :)

      , May 13th
  • I have enjoyed using this to liven up financial education about costs, profit, loss and tie in with a persuasive writing topic in literacy.

    However, I have found that the children ended up with a lot of money left over for marketing in lesson 5, so wonder whether this might need to be reviewed to ensure that the budget is a little tighter and more challenging. I wonder whether the project would benefit from some mechanism for rewarding well designed parks and advertising with extra sales?

    Very motivating though and the kids have enjoyed it.

    , May 11th
    • Hi StevieP252,
      Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, and for letting us know about lesson 5. I'll get this resource checked right away!

      , May 11th
    • Our lovely resource creators have looked into this resource for you and found that when making optimal (or close to optimal) decisions throughout the lessons you may end up happily under budget, however you can still quite easily run out of the allotted money. Because of this, we have decided to keep the £5 million figure as it is, but I have asked them to consider making a more challenging resource pack in the future!

      , May 15th
  • This is a fantastic resource for post-SATs maths - I have no doubt the children are going to love it! Will there be any more packs like this developed for year 6? I am on the hunt for similar resources to keep my lively year 6's inspired! Thank you 

    , May 7th
  • I'm using this resource to give children real life experiences with maths.

    , Jun 29th
  • I was looking for some real-life activities to do with Y6 post-SATS and this has been great. The kids love it and it enables them to work collaboratively. Well played, Twinkl.

  • hi I was wondering where I can find the estimated running costs for lesson 3? thanks

    , Jun 14th
    • Hi alnab84,
      Thanks for getting in touch!

      I've just downloaded this pack and can see that the estimated running costs sheet is included within the lesson 3 folder.

      It does look as though this pack has recently been updated so it may be that you have the older version of the pack. However, to prevent you from having to download the entire resource pack again, I have emailed the resource to you.

      Please let me know if I can help you further.

      Have a lovely evening! :)

      , Jun 14th
  • Post SATS maths, our children love this. Thanks

    , Jun 13th
  • Are the running costs now included in the pack? I am planning on teaching this today and just came across the same problem. Will take a while to download the whole pack again but no point if it is not included. Thanks.

    , Jun 7th
    • Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment! I've taken a look at this resource and the running costs have been updated on the activity sheet so you will be able to use this resource in your lesson. The PowerPoint does need to be updated to show the new information from the activity sheet, but this will not affect the lesson itself.

      Do let me know if you have any further queries - have a lovely day! :)

      , Jun 7th
    • Hi there clairmcenhill,
      We have now fixed this mistake and emailed you the corrected resource - I hope you find it useful! It will also be updated on the website very soon.

      , Jun 7th
  • Hi, just about to start this project too so please could you email me with the running costs too? Thanks

    , Jun 5th
    • Hi auplishr,
      I'll see what we can do for you! Thanks for commenting :)

      , Jun 5th
    • Hi there auplishr,
      Our lovely teacher and design teams have created this and emailed the new resource to you! It will also be available on the website within 48 hours, and you can find it either as a main resource, or under 'Alternative versions' above. I hope you find it useful!

      , Jun 6th
  • It is very good so far, however on lesson 3 when estimating running costs, there are no figures for electricity, maintenance, repair or other costs so children cannot generate the total cost. We had to work on developing a general amount for electricity etc... which children could then use.

    • Hi becky-stevie,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      I will ask our resource team to look into this for you right away.

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

  • This looks fantastic and can't wait to use it. Just having a quick look and in lesson one the power point and the hand out are different. The power point says amenities are orange and attractions are purple but on the hand out it is the other way around. Thanks.

    • Hi Emilyb17,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll get this corrected right away!

    • Hi eenalol,
      Great to hear it will be so useful :) Thanks for your feedback!

      , May 20th
A fantastic standalone project pack that is perfect for some post-SATs fun! Pupils work in groups with their business partners to plan, cost and market a theme park of their design. A cross-curricular pack that encourages teamwork, collaboration, decision-making, thinking skills, and recaps lots of previously-taught maths and English skills in a meaningful context.
