Over the past five years, my theme park spreadsheet lessons for Year 6 have been one of my most downloaded resources and very popular in lots of schools across the UK based on the many emails that I've received from schools that have used them.
This year however, with the need to include more programming lessons into the curriculum (e.g. using my Python guide) and my personal desire for a bit of a change, I decided to condense my Year 6 spreadsheet work right down into just two lessons! This was a big risk but it really, really did work very well - all the children were engaged, everyone improved their skills and many even described the activities as being "fun" which was great to hear.
As the two lessons seemed to work so successfully, I've decided to share them with you for you to adapt and use with your children - and as usual I would really appreciate any feedback on them.
