Fly to the line

In their Science lessons, Prep 4 have been taking part in a competition, where pupils design and make their own gliders.  The glider which flew the furthest is now taking part in a national completion against other schools in the region next week in Bury.

The winning team was ‘The Lighting Bolt’ built by Esme and Abigail! Second place was ‘MJ’ made by Molly and Jasmine, while ‘Fortnite Zombies’ – Luca C and Joel – came third.

    It was a lot of fun designing and making our aeroplanes.
    Our group was called “Come fly with me”. Joshua, Alfie and myself made a good attempt, but unfortunately it only flew 4m unlike the winning plane of 7m.

    Making the planes was so much fun, I especially liked painting them and decorating them. I also enjoyed weighing it and making sure that it balanced perfectly. I would definitely love to do this again.

    I had lots of fun making my glider because I got to measure the foam wings and use the hot glue gun to stick it together. Even though we didn’t win we learnt about how planes fly and my team worked well together.

    Well done lightning bolts

    I had fun making the plane with Abigail. I learnt that you have to balance it out to get it to fly well because if it’s too light then it doesn’t travel far and if it’s too heavy it just falls right down to the ground.
