This term the Year 2s are learning about all things transport. We will delve into the past and present day modes of transport and discover similarities and differences along the way.
To introduce the theme the children got to design and construct their own paper planes. After some discussion the children eagerly took to the task of making their planes. They made all different shapes and sizes. Once they were happy with their finished products we went outside and gave the planes their maiden flights. It was interesting to see how the different models fared and which ones went the furthest or the fastest.
The children got to amend any flaws that they had in their designs and then were given another chance to fly the planes to see if it made any difference. The results were amazing and a lot of fun was had by all!
