This SoW is designed to help learners link numeracy to all aspects of a Theme Park, from planning and budgeting to the actual building of the park. It covers an array of numeracy skills, starting with the area of the rides and attractions, to the profit and loss of the park and all its amenities.
Learners move onto creating a Minecraft Theme Park using the layout and research they complied in the Scheme’s previous lessons. It culminates with the learners creating a website to promote their Theme Park using persuasive writing.
