Term Five and Term Six - The Dam Busters

The Dam Busters

Does this music give you goose bumps? If so, just wait until you visit Class 1. The pride the children have for The Dam Busters is overwhelming - and we're only three days in to the project!

The Dam Busters is an integral part of Lincolnshire's history. Class 1 will be learning about this for the rest of the summer term. This will link to many areas of the curriculum.

 

For the next few weeks we will be focusing on our map skills! We will learn how to read them, how to draw them and how they helped The Dam Busters.

 

The children used the laptops to research the Mohne reservoir where the first dam was breached. Each group successfully found a map to show its location! Well done Class 1. A fantastic start to our term.

The children chose an aeroplane hangar for their role play this term. Using knowledge about paint brushes and rollers, the children worked in teams to create Class 1's very own hangar, which is now home to our Lancaster Bomber!

The finished hangar. Unfortunately, the tail and wing of our Lancaster were both damaged when flying on Thursday night. Luckily two mechanics were at hand to fix it!

We are very excited in Class 1. Tomorrow, we have Mr Westaway, our chair of Govenors coming in. He is Chief Technician on the Typhoons, RAF Coningsby. He is going to show us how to repair a damaged aircraft! Come back soon to see what we learnt...

Wow! What a fantastic afternoon. We are now trained flight engineers. If you ever need a plane repairing, you know where to come. A huge thank you to Mr Westaway for a brilliant workshop!
