Year 2 Supersonic Visit to Brooklands
Year 2 had a fabulous trip to Brooklands this week as part of their topic on Flight. The day took off with children having various tours around the site, looking at how aeroplanes developed from the basic and dangerous first planes like the Dragonfly steered by a rod sewn into the pilot’s jacket to supersonic Concorde and Harrier jump jets. They made their own ‘loopy gliders’, sampled Concorde’s luxury seating and learnt how various parts of the planes were produced in the aircraft factory. The day certainly flew by and everyone had a super(sonic) time. Chocks away Year 2!
