Foundation/Year 1 Flight

22nd April 2021
The children in Year One and Foundation have been learning about flight. We started by learning the history of air travel. The children learned about the Wright brothers and Amelia Earhart. They compared different objects that fly and looked for the common features. After identifying that flying objects have wings and pilots they created their very own airplane...out of paper!
The children enjoyed flying their planes outside on a sunny, breezy day. The next day they evaluated their planes and looked for ways to make them strong and stable. After another afternoon of flight the children took their planes home.
