THE HISTORY OF FLIGHT (1 hr.)
This workshop is available signed

Starting off with the Montgolfier Brothers and balloon flight we travel throughout different lands and times periods, to learn how flight developed. We meet the intrepid female pilots, Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson and their endeavours and achievements. Experience the Battle of Britain and see how accurate our bombers and pilots can be with Barnes Wallace's bouncing bombs.

Then moving forward in the space race we visit the moon and how technology has moved forward. We learn about different types of helicopters and planes including concord and how package holidays came about and then all set off on a jet plane to the sun, all in an hour!!

As usual all the pupils are involved, have props and costumes and become the characters through the ages whilst learning and having fun.
