Army Air Museum

This week year 1 visited the Museum of Army Flying to learn about the history of military transport. The children were given a guided tour of the museum focusing on the different vehicles the museum has in its collection. We especially enjoyed seeing all the different helicopters and look forward to finding out more about them after half term. We then took part in a session in the classroom where we had the opportunity to explore different flying vehicles e.g. parachutes, kites. We also got to make and fly our very own paper aeroplanes! We finally got to explore some of the exhibits in the museum further and were able to dress up in different army uniforms, then sit in a real helicopter and pretend to be the pilot!

Thank you very much to all our parent helpers and to the museum for such a wonderful trip.

Pirate Day!

Today Year 1 celebrated the end of our topic with a Pirate day where we all came to school dressed up. We were incredibly lucky to see the sun shining and completed a treasure hunt where we had to use a map of the school grounds to find hidden puzzle pieces.

We navigated Bee-Bot to different places on our very own treasure island maps. We really enjoyed creating and using our own instructions for building a pirate ship. 

A fun day was had by all!
