In term 1, we learnt lots about flying machines! We started off by learning about one of the first flying machines - the hot air balloon. Then we moved on to different types of aircraft like the Wright brother's invention of the first aeroplane.
We also carried out some research and found out about brave pioneers like Amelia Earhart and for our homework, many of us found out information about a local hero called Lillian Bland who is thought to be the first woman to have designed, built and flown her own aeroplane!
At the end of the enquiry, we designed and built our own models of aeroplanes paying particularly close attention to the design of our aeroplane's wings and fuselage.
