Year 2 become aviators!

On Wednesday 11th April we visited the Royal Air Force museum in Colindale, London to start our new theme, Up, up and away!

Our tour guides showed us some amazing planes dating back to 100 years old.

The first plane we explored was the bi-plane. It was made out of fabric and wood but painted silver to make it look like metal.

We could all fit under one wing of the Vulcan plane! It has four engines and can move through the sky very quickly!

We had the chance to make our own plane and used learned how to use the words “thrust,” “gravity” and “lift.”

Lunchtime was fun because we got to play on air gliders!

Throughout the day we explored the images and symbols on the planes called “roundels.”

 

We had such an amazing day!

What was your favourite part of the day? Leave us a comment below.
