From Montà to the space!

From Montà to the space!

On December 17 2019 ,the children of the fourth and fifth classes met a nice young man, Saverio.
Originally from Montà, in 2005 Saverio had a fantastic experience: he experienced a flight in zero gravity 
and floating without weight.He participated in a selection of volunteers and took part in a flight 
with a special plane, the G-Force one, which took off from Miami, USA, rose to 10,000 meters on the Gulf of Mexico 
and dropped to 45 degrees to cancel the force of gravity!

with him were an 86 year old man and a disabled girl, the first to experience weightless flight.
It is never late to make a dream come true.
Saverio shared pictures, memories and emotions with the kids and told them that he was chosen for two reasons: 
knowledge of English and good physical shape. 
Two important tips for the new generations!
Thank you Super Saverio!!!!!















































Aircraft in World War I

Aircraft in World War I

Jacob loves learning about history. He was delighted to bring in his book from home which shows some of the old aircraft that was used in the World War I. He was amazed to see that some of them were very similar to the aircraft designed and made by the Wright brothers in 1903.

 

Airport Police arrive at school!

Airport Police arrive at school!

We’ve had a couple of visitors in Nursery this week.  Two Policemen from the airport came to see us and tell us what they do to help.  They brought spare uniform and equipment for us to try and also let us sit in their police car and switch on the sirens and lights.

They also told us about the police helicopter that they use to get around the region very quickly.

Using a compass and positional vocabulary

Using a compass and positional vocabulary

Year 3 took part in an outdoor learning session linked to maths and airshows. The children used positional vocabulary to direct their peers around a grid using eight points of a compass. They developed their knowledge of how to use a compass to find North. The know that pilots in all aircraft need to be able to use a compass!
