We will be learning about flight in History this term. Please view each point below as a separate lesson and watch the corresponding video. You can complete these activities as and when you like. Have fun!
Story "Taking Flight" By Adam Hanchen. Published by Lincoln Children's Books.
Lesson 4 Story part 2
Lesson 5 Make An Aeroplane part 1
Today we are making an aeroplane. You will need: a cardboard toilet roll tube, thin card, pom poms or something else round for wheels, lolly sticks or something else for a propeller, scissors, glue, paint and a paintbrush. A peg could be used to hold things in place for glue drying.
Lesson 5 Make An Aeroplane part 2
If you don't want to make a biplane, you could make yours like the photo below this video. Follow the first instructions but stick the rectangles either side of the tube. Cut them into a triangle wing shape and use the extra bits for a tail on the back!
Lesson 6 Similarities & differences
After watching this video, draw a picture of an old or new aeroplane and label its features. You could use one of the aeroplane colouring sheets below to label instead. We can't wait to see your neat colouring and handwriting.
