The Frecce Tricolori (The Three Colours Arrows)

The Frecce Tricolori (The Three Colours Arrows)

The Frecce Tricolori (TheThree colours Arrows) is the Italian Air Force National Acrobatic Patrol , born in 1961. With ten planes, nine of which are in training and one soloist, they are the most numerous aerobatic patrol in the world. Their flight program, comprising about twenty acrobatics lasting about half an hour, made them famous and recognized as one of the best aerobatic air patrols on an international level. This year, they  took off on May 25th from its headquarters of Rivolto (UD) and, after flying over Trento,  headed towards Codogno, a symbol of the epidemic from Covid-19, finally also reaching Milan, Turin and Aosta.

The Frecce tour for the Republic Day,   will reach a total of 21 cities: on the 26th Genoa, Florence, Perugia and L’Aquila;  the towns  of Cagliari and Palermo will follow on the 27th; on the 28th in the South with Catanzaro, Bari, Potenza, Naples, Campobasso; on the 29th it will be the turn of Loreto, Ancona, Bologna, Venice and Trieste. The  grand finale will be in Rome on the 2nd of June.

For the project, the children chose a city each and represented a monument flown over by the Frecce Tricolore. Then they sent it to the teacher from home.

In this way,  they have combined History, Geography, Technology  and Art ….with all their heart.

VE Day Celebrations – May 8th 2020

May 8th 1945 marked the end of World War Two in Europe. The day was one of celebration in Britain and saw people coming together to enjoy the victory in streets up and down the country.

The corona-virus outbreak meant people commemorated the 75th anniversary of VE Day within their own homes.

As a school community, we united together with our nation to celebrate and mark this historic day in a very memorable way.

Thank you for sending in your photographs of your wonderful VE Day celebrations and activities.

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.
