Is it for:

The whole school?

What Year group if not the whole school?

Should it be simply a fun day or does it need to be linked to curriculum in some way?

We've now watched both of the episodes that have been broadcast.  It's excellent TV - thanks.  It could also be useful for anyone doing work on the geography or conflict (as he travels through war-torn South Sudan).

Theme Parks are always good.  Do you have anything like go-ape near you (I don't know how much they cost) I've tagged along with trips that have included that sort of activity and the kids have generally enjoyed it.

We do theme parks (Thorpe Park?), and the older ones prefer a day where we hire out  a centre which has ice skating, lazer tag and bowling, and they cycle through the three activities.

Hi All

I've been asked to arrange a reward trip for my school. 
I'm based in Essex (but can travel).
Have 130 students to take.
Looking for a price range between £10 and £30 for a day.

Can anyone please offer me some ideas for inspiration?

Thanks, was the population pyramid one I was looking for although the other one makes pyramids that are easier to follow

General Discussion / Website for population pyramids, forgot the name
« Last post by zcsaa44 on January 14, 2015, 11:58:13 AM »
A few years ago I saw a geography teacher using a website to look at population pyramids. It allowed you to select the country and you could look at the pyramids and how they have changed over time as well as projection into the future, want to use it for a lesson but cannot find the website as I do not remember the name. Does what I am explaining ring any bells
