MANOR SCHOOL

ACHIEVING TOGETHER

Events Page

Following on from our Amelia Earhart week we were very excited to have another visitor come to our school! Year 1 were visited by Mr Vaughan who brought in his model aeroplane that was an Electra just like the one that Amelia flew across the Atlantic! Mr Vaughan is very knowledgeable about planes and was very impressed with how much the children could remember about aviation and Amelia Earhart! He even brought in a real flying jacket from the 1930s! 

Mr Vaughan showed the children how the plane worked just like a real plane and they were able to see how the rudder, ailerons and elevators moved and controlled the plane. Unfortunately it was too windy to go on a flight but we did turn the engine on to feel the power. We carefully lifted the plane and got ready to start the engine, however the children had to say something really important first; " Contact, Ignition, Chocks Away!" Then whoosh! We started the engine and the propeller went so fast that it made wind go all around the classroom and even blew down some of our displays! 

It was great fun and we would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Vaughan for bringing in his plane for us! Maybe in the summer we can take it for a flight. smiley

We recently had Amelia Earhart fly into our school! She flew into the hall in her plane and told the children all about her adventures and what it was like to be the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic. The children had some great questions to ask Amelia (who suspiciously looked a lot like Mrs Vaughan) and we continued to learn about her for the rest of the week. The children have had lots of fun designing their own planes. learning about the different kinds of planes, where Amelia flew to and from, what she took on the journeys with her and we have even been looking at the routes she took on maps. We really enjoyed learning about Amelia Earhart and found her very inspirational! 
We have had an exciting time in Year 1 recently and we have been really enjoying our topic Inspirational People. We recently had a visit from a Nurse, which was very exciting. The children loved hearing about what Nurses do and they even got to try out lots of real medical equipment! The children had lots of questions and we learned a lot about what Nurses do. We would like to say a big thank you to Nurse Law for her wonderful visit.
