Reception have designed and are making their own emergency vehicles that we would see at the airport or at an airshow.
We have collected old boxes, containers and pots and have thought about the different shapes that we need to use. We first used masking tape to make stick the boxes together. We have chosen to make ambulances, fire engines and police cars!
The next step was to paper mache our vehicle so that we can paint them when dry. It was a messy job but we all enjoyed it!
This week we look forward to painting our models and adding wheels!
Year 5 took part in photo orienteering as part of an outdoor learning session. The children were given images of items within the school grounds. They had to find the items and identify the co-ordinates on their maps.
As part of our Erasmus Airshows project, Year 2 have started to learn about the Wright Brothers and their amazing invention of the world’s first successful airplane. The children were fascinated to learn that this was only just over 115 years ago.
This week we were very lucky to have a British Airways Cabin Crew member come into school. The children were each given different roles which are carried out not only on an aircraft but also in the airport. The children had to use their best acting skills and act out different scenarios. Our visitor showed us what each role entailed and how she was trained to deal with them. This day linked well with our international project, Erasmus.
The children had a fantastic time and say thank you to our visitor!
