Taking it to the sky!
Continuing with our topic of inventions, we started to research the progression of aviation. We used our topic lessons to research and gather information on the Wright Brothers, who were the first creators of the engined airplane. We used different information sources to gather facts and used role play and freeze framing to understand the thoughts and feelings during their turbulent time inventing the airplane. We used our new found information to answer the Wright Brothers crossword and to write a newspaper article reporting on the first successful flight.
Below are some of the interesting facts the children have learnt.
"There were two Wright brothers, Wilbur the oldest and Orvile the yougest." - Evie
"A man called Tate helped them get the airplane to finally fly" - Sebastian
"The first flight took place on 17th December 1903" - Aistis
