Week 5

The World's first Flying Machine!


We have been learning about 'The Wright Brothers' in History. We have been fascinated with the machines that they built, and we have learned about being resilient and to persevere even when things don't look like they might work. Using the book, 'Taking Flight', we have been able to learn key facts about the brothers, the glider, and the very first engine powered biplane.
