Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Week 9 & 10

From owls to hot air balloons and now....biplanes!


In these two weeks, the children read a new story about the two men from USA who invented the world's first aeroplane. The children have thoroughly enjoyed acting out the story, using great facial expressions and body language! 



We will be looking at the features and language of newspapers, in order for us to pretend that we were really there at the time, watching this marvellous "mechanical bird" take flight.


The video here shows the Wright Brothers testing their gliders and aeroplanes.
