Class 1R visit Shuttleworth

The children in Class 1R have been learning about old aeroplanes and the people who flew them.  We visited Shuttleworth to see some of these old planes and to find out more information about them.

There were lots of old aeroplanes to see and we had guides to tell us all about them.  We have learnt about Amy Johnson recently and the children were very excited to see a replica of the plane she flew to Australia in.  We also saw some old fashioned buses, carriages and cars.  We all jumped when the guide bibbed the horn!  It was very cold in the hangers so we had to wrap up warm.  Luckily we could eat our packed lunch in a much warmer room.  All the children enjoyed visiting the gift shop at the end where they bought gliders and fairy gliders!
